Eight people were reportedly killed and dozens received injuries when a passenger bus crashed on the M7 motorway in Hungary in the early hours of Sunday.

According to police officials, the bus in Hungary rolled over for unknown reasons the west of Budapest.

The bus, which had a Hungarian licence plate and carried more than 50 passengers, had crashed into an overpass pillar, police added.

The motorway connects with the Croatian motorway A4 at Goričan and forms part of the Pan-European corridor Vb, connecting Budapest with Zagreb, the capital of Croatia.

Since the completion of the M7, it is possible to travel on the motorway from Budapest to the Adriatic Sea. However, Hungary has seen a number of fatal crashes over recent years.
