“We have declared an extraordinary event of mass disability of persons of the first degree. Five of our crews intervened on the spot and we called two helicopters,” summed up Radek Hes, spokesman for the Medical Rescue Service of the Karlovy Vary Region.

The helicopter to Prague flew back empty due to the death of the person being revived. The other transported a patient with a moderate injury to the emergency department of the Pilsen University Hospital. “We transported the other three people to the Karlovy Vary hospital by ambulance,” added Hes.

“There are three units of firefighters on the scene and we are carrying out an intervention,” said regional fire department spokesman Martin Kasal.

The accident happened before 15:00 near exit 83 between Bošov and the turn to Čichalov. The bypass route leads from Karlovy Vary to Vahaneč and Verušičky, from Ústí nad Labem then through Chyši.

This is the second accident on the I/6 road on Monday. Approximately two hours before the tragic accident near Čichalovo, two passenger cars and a van collided near Bochov in Karlovy Vary. The emergency services took care of the injured here, and traffic on the road was also completely stopped for the duration of the rescue work.
