An urban explorer was amazed to discover the remains of a notorious train wreck – with the damaged vehicle left to rot for five years.
The explorer, known on Facebook as Frenkie, posted eerie images of the "Yellow Wreck" – a train that crashed on the route from Veľký Meder to Komárno in Slovakia back in 2016.
According to reports, 31 people were hurt during the incident as a RegioJet train collided with a truck, resulting in four people being airlifted to hospital with serious injuries.
RegioJet spokesman Aleš Ondrůj told Slovakian news site, Provada, at the time that the train had been struck by the train at the crossroads but upon inspection, the hazard warnings around this area had been functional.
It was unclear how the driver ended off on the tracks, however, police speculated that the truck driver entered the crossing at a time when there was a warning announcing an incoming train.
There was no evidence that alcohol was involved.

But now, five years after the crash, the train remains in a junkyard with the remains of the truck visibly trapped underneath it.
Images showing the side of the train shows where bits of metal had been torn away at impact and the windows are cracked.

The inside of the carriage has been stripped out with wires left hanging from the ceiling.
Much of the trains original signage is left still intact including its wifi logo – although it's doubtful there will be any signal from it now.

The paintwork on the rear of the train remains as bright yellow as ever leading to its name the "Yellow Wreck."
Some graffiti has been sprayed on the train by vandals who have passed the site before.
It is unclear whether there are any plans to crush the remains of the train but for now, it sits as a very harrowing reminder for safety around the tracks.
