Accident D5: A biker crashed into a car in the opposite direction, he died
The crazy accident took place nearby shortly before one afternoon on the 5th kilometer of the D5 motorway near Rudná Prague. “There was a collision between a motorcyclist and a car. According to preliminary information, the biker was supposed to be built by police officers, but he did not respond to calls to stop, he got in the opposite direction and crashed into the car in the front,“Police spokeswoman Michaela Richterová described the course of the tragic accident to Blesk. According to Blesk, the police wanted to stop him because the radar measured his speed of 206 km / h!
The motorcycle started to burn after the accident, the biker remained lying helplessly on the ground and the van driver remained stuck in the wrecked car. “The highway police patrol, which noticed the accident, immediately reported it to rescuers at its operations center,” said Jaroslav Gabriel, a spokesman for the Prague fire brigade.
According to Petra Effenbergerová, a spokeswoman for the Central Bohemian rescuers, the biker succumbed to his injuries on the spot. According to Gabriel, firefighters extinguished the motorcycle, rescued the driver of the van, who coincidentally carried the motorcycle in the cargo area, and then took fire-fighting measures and covered the leaked operating fluids. “The van driver suffered serious multiple injuries, including pelvic injuries. He needed intensive medical care, he was provided with airways, was connected to lung ventilation and air transport to the Central Military Hospital, “added Effenberger.
He was not allowed to drive
The police also found out that the biker did not have a driver’s license and did not drive the motorcycle at all. “He had a valid driver’s license block. It’s possible he was driving because of it. Of course, he was also ordered for an autopsy if he was not affected by the addictive substance, “Richter said later.
The highway was closed in both directions for about 45 minutes, long columns formed. Around 13:45 we managed to resume traffic in the direction of Prague, later we managed to partially resume traffic in the direction of Pilsen. Initially a parking lane, before five o’clock the road was completely put into operation.
