Hungary: Minibus driver kills 9 people because of “Facebook live”
In Hungary, a minibus driver collided head-on with a truck that killed nine people because the minibus driver was on Facebook and swerved out to meet another vehicle.
The incident took place on Tuesday, a few dozen kilometres from Budapest.
In a video, one can see the Romanian driver filming himself and also hear music from the car radio. The least one can say is that he was not focused on the road.
At the beginning of the video, the driver was well on his way, but bowed his head very often to read comments from his video posted live on Facebook. Smile in his mouth, he was far from suspecting that it would be his last moment in this life.
This is where he turns the camera of his phone to film the road and at the same time, he tries to double the car in front of him, but in the opposite direction arrived a truck. Consequence of his imprudence: all the passengers of the minibus, as well as him lost his life.
In the vehicle, there were 7 men and two women all Romanian.
Kwa upande wake, dereva wa lori hilo alikuwa na michubuko kidogo. Polisi wa Hungary wamefungua uchunguzi ili kufahamu zaidi mazingira ya ajali hiyo.
