Synopsis:
Mr. Milenko Dzever, engine driver from Zednik near Subotica, killed 23 people while driving his train. Entering locomotive he has never known whether somebody will throw himself under the train or incautiously cross grade crossing. Engine drivers can always see somebody is going to be killed but can do nothing to prevent it. That way they become executors against their will. Sometimes whole families or groups of people in vehicles throw themselves under the train.
