Hungarian police will propose to the country’s prosecutor’ office that a woman from Košice who was involved in a fatal car accident on Hungary’s M3 highway on Tuesday, August 21, remain in custody, the TASR newswire reported, citing Hungarian newswire MTI. Three people died in a fire resulting from the accident, in which their car and the Slovak woman’s reportedly collided; a fourth person managed to crawl out of the wreckage but suffered serious burns. The Slovak woman suffered only minor injuries.

According to MTI, Pest police spokesperson Andrea Beluzsár-Belicz said that the fate of the Slovak driver would probably be decided this week. She added that the reasons for her detention were the seriousness of the case, her drunken state and the fact that she is a foreign national. Beluzsár-Belicz told TASR that the Slovak was “medium drunk” but refused to specify the amount of alcohol in her blood. The Slovak drove a BMW which reportedly hit a Fiat Punto from behind; the Punto then hit the crash barriers and caught fire.

The Slovak media have identified the Slovak driver as Eva Varholíková-Rezešová, daughter of the late Alexander Rezeš, a former minister, businessman and chief executive of the VSŽ steelworks.
