Saturday car accidents kill 10

THE FIRST snow in Slovakia this winter and slippery roads led to a death toll of 10 on November 19. At about 10.00 three people were killed in a car accident close to Kráľová nad Váhom.

In a car crash in Žilina, four people died and another three people were killed on the road between Tatranská Lomnica and Svit, the SITA news agency reported.

Allegedly, Slovak actor Marián Labuda was involved in a car accident in the Czech Republic in which two women were killed. The highway was covered with snow when the accident happened. Labuda's car went into a skid and slammed into two women who were standing near the guard-rail after being in a similar mishap seconds earlier.

According a spokesperson, police are still investigating the accident in an effort to determine Labuda's culpability. More details will be published later today. The investigation will last several weeks.

The accident happened 156 kilometres from Prague on the highway towards Bratislava. A woman driver is thought to have slammed into the guard-rail. Then she and a female passenger got out of the car and were walking along the highway, where they were struck by a car driven by Labuda.
