Pedestrian killed on M3

A dead body was discovered on the side of the M3 motorway Wednesday morning at the 11km mark, police have announced.

Police later identified the body as that of a woman who had been struck by a car on the motorway.

Police cameras revealed that the driver ran over a woman walking on the motorway at around 1.10 a.m. Wednesday as he was driving towards Mogyorod.

The woman sustained such severe injuries that she died on the spot.

The driver continued on without providing assistance.

The car’s rear-view mirror broke off in the accident, which helped police to identify the vehicle.

Detectives arrested a 20-year-old resident of Gyomro, and began proceedings against him for failing to provide assistance. (hvg.hu; index.hu; 24.hu; propeller.hu; blikk.hu)
