25-08-2012

Two Czechs, a father and son, were killed on an Austrian highway shortly after midnight after getting out to change a flat tire and getting hit by a truck. According to the APA news agency the accident happened on the highway to Salzburg. Apparently the car was parked correctly and the men put out warning triangles behind their vehicle before getting to work on the tire. One truck reportedly gave them a wide berth but another following in its wake failed to see them and hit them at full speed. Both were killed on the spot. Two other people in the car were unhurt but had to be treated for shock.
