The Polish bus with a trailer spun out of control on a left-hand curve between the Treuen and Reichenbach junctions, flipping several times and came to rest on its upside down.

Two of the vehicle’s passengers died on the scene of the accident. A third passenger died in the hospital shortly thereafter.

The A72 towards Chemnitz was closed until the accident could be cleared.
