Six killed, one year-old survives, horrific car accident

Six people including two children were killed in a car accident near the east Bohemian village of Gajary early Saturday. The accident took place at around 1 am when the passengers' vehicle was struck head-on by a van, whose driver suffered injury and is now in hospital. Police are not ruling out alcohol as a factor in the accident. The six people killed were members of two families headed for vacation in Slovakia: a one-year-old child was the sole passenger in the car to survive the crash.
