According to ŘSD, the accident occurred after 05:00 in the direction of Brno. “Parts of the wrecked cars flew in the opposite direction, where several cars crashed into them,” the Central Bohemian Region police said.

According to the police, for example, a truck was stopped in the same place in the direction of Prague due to a diesel leak. Until 07:00, the convoy in the direction of Prague stretched from the accident site to almost the 23rd km of D1. In the opposite direction, a line of cars formed around the ninth kilometer.
