Traffic is back on the M1 motorway after Saturday’s horror crash

On the highway towards Hegyeshalom, at kilometer 31, 5 trucks and 37 cars collided, one person died, 39 were injured, and several vehicles caught fire. According to the Hungarian Concession Infrastructure Developer (MKIF) Zrt., the accident may have been caused by a local blowing of dust, which may have caused a sudden decrease in visibility.

According to information from Útinform by Sunday morning, the authorities had completed the technical rescue and the site investigation, the highway was also opened on the side leading to Hegyeshalom, so that traffic is now flowing smoothly in both directions.
