The ongoing snowy and windy weather caused a mass traffic accident, which happened early Thursday morning on the highway in the section between Poprad and the village of Spišský Štvrtok in northern Slovakia. As Zuzana Farkasová from the Presidium of the Fire and Rescue Corps informed the TASR news agency, 30-40 vehicles collided on the spot. 24 injured persons, two of them with severe injuries, were transferred to Poprad, Kežmarok, Levoča and Spišská Nová Ves hospitals, where seven rescue crews intervened. The highway in both directions remains closed until further notice.
