The bus company owning the double decker that crashed in Härjedalen on Sunday, when three teenagers were killed, has recently been criticised for bad maintenance of its vehicles.

In a series of reports in the daily Sydsvenska Dagbladet, drivers as well as mechanics working for Bergkvarabuss, which owns the bus in question, claimed that the company is cutting corners when it comes to repairs and that it is cheating to get the buses through the regular vehicle inspections.
