The accident happened near Zilina when for some unknown reason the 22-yr old driver suddenly jerked the wheel, changing lane before smashing into the back of a semi-trailer of a truck, which then dragged them about 350 metres along the motorway.

Only one driver was badly injured, and now lies in a hospital in Zilina. The other passengers got out unharmed. The police are now looking into the cause of the accident and have taken a blood sample from the driver to check for alcohol or drugs.
