Czech International Josef Sural Killed in Bus Crash in Turkey

ANKARA – Czech international soccer player Josef Sural died and six other players were injured in a minibus crash in Turkey, their club Alanyaspor confirmed on Monday.

The seven players of the Super Lig club rented the minibus to return from an away game against Kayserispor that ended in a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

The minibus carrying Sural, Steven Caulker, Djalma Campos, Isaac Sackey, Papiss Cisse, Welinton Souza and Wanderson ‘Baiano’ Souza overturned and crashed when the driver fell asleep in the Mediterranean province of Antalya.

Chairman of Alanyaspor Hasan Cavusoglu told the press that there were two drivers on the VIP minibus and, according to the preliminary information he received from the police, both drivers had fallen asleep.

Cavusoglu said that all seven players were wounded in the accident and hospitalized immediately but Sural was critically injured and died in hospital.

He added that the lives of the other players were not at risk because their injuries were not that serious.

Sural, 28, joined Alanyaspor in January from AC Sparta Prague for 160,000 euros ($178,575) and scored a goal in the 11 matches he played with the Turkish club.

Sural became father of a baby girl in February.
