Novi Sad Police Administration Spokeswoman Mileva Tomić has stated that the accident happened around 20:50 CET.

The Serbian Railways has said that the traffic is still blocked.

Daily Blic writes that it is still unknown what the girls, who lived nearby, were doing on the tracks. According to unofficial information, the twins and their friend took their dog for a walk just before the tragedy took place.

The train from Subotica hit the girls near an overpass.

The third girl returned home and her parents called the police and ambulance that quickly arrived at the scene.

Police are investigating the details of the accident. After she heard about the death of her daughters, the girls’ mother collapsed and was hospitalized.

The daily writes that three young men died on the same stretch of the track a year ago when their car was hit by a freight train.
