Żmuda added that the perpetrator left the scene. She indicated that after a few hours, the policemen, based on the reports of witnesses who were at the site, as well as on the basis of monitoring records, determined that the perpetrator was a 70-year-old resident of the Poniec commune driving a Skoda. The man was sober.

– The driver is threatened with at least a fine of up to PLN 30,000, but in this particular case we are still talking about failure to provide assistance and here the court may issue an order prohibiting him from driving, hence the police stopped his license – said the policewoman.
