9 dead in accident, driver was live on Facebook

Illustration for article titled 9 dead in accident, driver was live on Facebook

The VW Transporter was carrying Romanian season workers home from Slovenia, when the driver - who was broadcasting live on Facebook at the time - hit an oncoming gravel truck while overtaking another vehicle.
The accident, which occurred in Central Hungary on 22 May, left everyone in the minibus dead, while the truck driver walked away with slight injuries.
As the investigation revealed, the 38-year-old driver of the VW did not hold a valid licence, and Romanian authorities revoked his vehicle’s MoT two months before the accident.

(The scene towards the end of the video does not show the crash in question.)
