Extreme Bulgarian weather kills three

Atmosphere - A truck is seen overturned after a crash caused by a heavy snowfall at the highway near the Bulgarian town of Veliko Tarnovo. The heavy snowfall and cold weather has killed three people in Bulgaria, with a state of emergency declared in parts of north-western Bulgaria and authorities warning against travel to the area. In Vratsa and Montana districts, strong winds and heavy snow has created snowdrifts reaching as high as four metres, reports said. Rescue teams were needed to evacuate 320 people and free hundreds of cars trapped in the snow, but some villages were still without electricity on December 30. Three people died after being trapped in snow - a patient in an ambulance, a man inside his car and one in his own backyard. - Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria - Wednesday 31st December 2014 (4 Pictures)
