1 dead, 6 injured in Gorj car accident



The driver of a van carrying miners to the Motru area in the county of Gorj died and other six passengers were injured on Thursday after their vehicle rolled over. According to the policemen quoted by Mediafax, the accident happened on an access road to the interior of the Rosiuta quarry. An ambulance of the Emergency, Resuscitation and Release Service (SMURD) was requested to take one of the miners to a medical unit in Craiova.
