Romanian driver sentenced to jail in Hungary over 2011 accident

A court of law in Szeged, Hungary, yesterday sentenced a Romanian driver who committed a road accident in Hungary, October 2011, which left 14 people dead, to seven years in prison, Mediafax quoted Hungarian agency MTI as reporting. The 31-year-old driver from Arad was also banned from driving for seven years after his release and from entering Hungary for five years. On Oct 30, 2011, the Romanian was driving a wood-loaded truck in Hungary on his way to Germany. At some point during the trip on the M43 Motorway in Southern Hungary, the truck skidded at a curve, smashed the bulwark separating the opposite lanes and went into the oncoming lane colliding head-on with a minivan with Romanian matriculation plates, killing 14 of the people aboard, of whom a 6-year-old girl, a boy age 8 and four women.
