Austrian authorities found an abandoned truck on the side of a highway filled with what is believed to be anywhere from 20 to 50 dead migrants, The Washington Post reported.

Police discovered the truck Thursday morning parked on the Austrian autobahn near the town of Parndorf located west of Hungary. Authorities said the bodies had already begun decaying.

According to The Washington Post, the license plate of the truck carrying the logo of a Hyza chicken meat company was registered to a Romanian citizen and had been sold by the company years ago.

Hyza spokesman Nicholas Šranko told NBC:

“We are really sorry about the tragedy that happened in Austria — today is a really black day. Unfortunately we did not remove the branding before we sold the vehicle, but we will be sure to do this in the future.”

Police said the people inside, who are believed to be from Syria, likely suffocated.

Austria has experienced an influx of trucks carrying illegal migrants that have come in from Hungary and traveling through Austrian territory to access other parts of western Europe.

On Tuesday, Police brought in a truck filled with more than 30 migrants, including children, which they said traveled nonstop from the Hungarian-Serbian border.
