An alleged people smuggler was hit by a car and died on the M6 motorway in western Hungary as he tried to flee police officers, local police reported.
The man, who has yet to be identified, was transporting 5 Syrian nationals without travel documents in his car. Seeing police officers signalling to stop, he jumped out of his car and climbed across the steel fence between the lanes, but a car coming from the opposite direction hit him, the police said on its website. The man was driving a car with Hungarian plates. The accident happened in the Besnyő area.
