In the area of Babki (Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship) – on the national road number 65 – the school bus driver forced the right of way and almost ran into the side of the truck. The man was carrying 27 children. And as the police informs, it was only thanks to the truck driver’s reaction that a serious road incident did not take place.
On Wednesday (November 17) – around 1.20 p.m. on the national road number 65 – in the area of Babki (Gołdap commune), a school bus collided with a truck. Although nobody was hurt, the police emphasized that it was just a hair away from the tragedy.
As the police found out, the bus driver – leaving the subordinate road – forced the priority of the truck driver going from Olecko to Gołdap.
The drivers were sober
– Thanks to the vigilance and appropriate reaction of the 30-year-old truck driver, the tragedy did not happen. The man, seeing the behavior of the 51-year-old bus driver, turned into a side road, thanks to which both vehicles rubbed together. If he had not done so, he would have run into the side of the autosan, in which 27 children traveled at that time – says the younger aspirant Anna Barszczewska from the Poviat Police Headquarters in Gołdap.
The drivers were sober. The police detained the bus driver’s license and issued a motion for punishment to the court.
