A BMW car being driven by Varholíková-Rezešová, who is the daughter of Alexander Rezeš, the late Mečiar-era tycoon and former minister, reportedly collided with a Fiat Punto. That car then hit crash barriers on the highway and caught fire, leading to the deaths of all four occupants. Varholíková-Rezešová suffered only minor injuries. According to police, she was intoxicated at the time of the accident.
