They were returning home from away match in Gliwice.

Two supporters died and thirty-four were injured on Tuesday morning when a bus transporting football fans home to Gdansk careered off the road near Wlocawek in central Poland.

Ten of the injured are in a serious condition,” confirmed Pawel Fratczak, a spokesman for the local fire brigade, to the Polish Press Agency (PAP).

The accident happened on the DK1 national road a little before 4 am as heavy snow fell across the region. Three buses were traveling in convoy, carrying Lechia Gdansk fans from a match against Piast Gliwice.

“All we know is that the bus came off the road, went through a ditch and then turned over in a field,” police spokesperson Malgorzata Marczak told the TVN24 news channel.

Late winter snowfalls have made road conditions hazardous across much of Poland.

Meanwhile, the section of the DK1 road has now reopened to traffic. (nh)
