An alleged people smuggler was hit by a car and died on the M6 motorway in western Hungary as he tried to flee police officers on Monday night, local police reported.
The man, who has yet to be identified, was transporting 5 Syrian nationals without travel documents in his car. Seeing police officers signalling to stop, he jumped out of his car and climbed across the steel fence between the lanes, but a car coming from the opposite direction hit him, the police said on its website.
The man was driving a car with Hungarian plates.
The incident occurred on February 8, 2021, around 5:50 p.m., in the 40-kilometer section of the M6 motorway at the Pheasant Resting Area in the Besnyő area. There was a complete roadblock during the police scene.
The innocent driver was not injured.
