Deadly train accident

A passenger car collided with a train on the outskirts of Nagymaros, Pest county, at a railway crossing on Tuesday. The driver of the car died instantly, Pest county police announced.

Mávinform press officer Viktor Váczi said that shuttle buses were running between Verőce and Szob, and that trains will take 30 to 40 minutes longer to reach their destinations during an on-site inspection.

This was the third deadly accident in Hungary within 12 hours. Two motorcyclists were killed earlier in the day.
