One of them is Adrian B., who, as established in the investigation, was driving the car.

She also reported that the man was carrying two oversized passengers. – It was a convertible with seats only for the driver and passenger, so only two people could travel in it. The two men, who were traveling on the trunk, fell out of the vehicle around a bend in the road and hit a concrete pole. Unfortunately, they died – Skrzeczkowska explained.

She noted that 1.27 per mille of alcohol was found in the blood of the former officer driving the convertible. – In addition, he and the passenger who survived the accident fled the scene – said Skrzeczkowska.

The police officer faces 12 years in prison

She also informed that Adrian B. was charged with driving while intoxicated, causing a fatal accident and fleeing the scene, and failing to provide assistance. He faces up to 12 years in prison.

A passenger in the convertible who fled the scene was charged with failing to render assistance.
