Two French nationals, including a twelve-year-old child, were killed this Friday in a road accident in Slovenia, Le Parisien learned from a police source.

The two victims, a 40-year-old man and a 12-year-old child, were near the town of Vrtojba, on the Italian border, in a minibus carrying eight children from Var on a holiday camp.

Seven other children were reportedly injured and were taken to a local hospital for treatment. According to Slovenian media, the children – who were probably returning from a football tournament in Austria – were slightly injured but in severe shock and were all taken to Šempeter hospital.

According to a surgeon at the hospital, quoted by Slovenian media RTV SLO, “the children’s injuries do not require intensive treatment or urgent surgical interventions (…) As far as we know, parents are already on their way from France to Slovenia.”

In circumstances that remain to be determined, their vehicle collided with a truck around 9:30 a.m. According to local media Delo, it was the minibus that hit the semi-trailer that was stationary on a highway.

A crisis unit has been activated at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
