MOSCOW, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Moscow police said they were looking into criminal charges in a traffic accident that killed seven people at a bus stop Saturday.

Four people were injured in the crash and three children were among the fatalities.

The Moscow Times said the 30-year-old driver was apparently drunk.
