By Hungary Today // 2018.06.11.

Four members of a family died in a storm on Friday night after a tree fell on their car in Dombóvár, southern Hungary, local police said.

The accident’s lone survivor was a woman who lost her 43-year-old husband, 17-year-old daughter, 19-year-old daughter-in-law and 5 month-old grandchild. The accident occurred when, on their way home from the hospital, a 40-meter tree fell on their car during a thunderstorm that rampaged throughout southwestern Hungary, breaking off branches, damaging overhead lines and toppling trees onto roads.
