Three dead after car collision with truck

A fatal collision occurred early Friday morning near Klecany, small town of 3 000 north of Prague. It is not yet known what led to the crash, but apparently a personal car with three passengers collided with a truck, causing a total demolition of the car.

Most of what remained of the car ended up in a field next to the road with other pieces scattered around. The police say the engine was completely torn off by the impact and was lying 50 meters away from the car. Even though witnesses tried to resuscitate the victims, the attempt went unsuccessful and all three of the passengers died.
