The fantastic footballer from Szeged had been very successful and had been a member of a plethora of football teams in Hungary and had been playing at Kaposvölgye VSC as a defender since 2007. According to Délmagyar, he unexpectedly passed away before his time.
Two people died and five were injured in an accident at Main Road 8, near Városlőd, the spokesman of the Veszprém County Police Headquarters informed MTI about the accident.
Three passenger cars and a truck crashed in an accident on Saturday, and, according to the information of RTL News, a middle-aged woman and a young man lost their lives in the multi-vehicle accident, Blikk wrote.
RTL News said that a woman driving with her two children in the back of the car tried to overtake a large truck but was unaware of the traffic in the other lane. The driver of the first car in the other lane was able to evade collision, but the small truck behind it frontally crashed with the mother’s car.
