A resident of Ornontowice, in the Silesian Voivodeship, in the middle of the night he heard a huge bang and felt a shock. He went outside and saw a crashed car with a young man sitting in the passenger seat. When the policemen arrived, there was no one left in the car. A collapsed power pole rested on the building.
Around two in the morning from Sunday to Monday in Ornontowice, near Mikołów in the Silesian Voivodeship, a passenger car driver hit a power pole. This one fell over the house.
In the middle of the night, he heard a bang and felt a shock
– The gentleman from the damaged house told the policemen that in the middle of the night he heard a huge bang and felt a shock. When he left the house, in the car, in the passenger seat, a young man was sitting, who said that he did not want any help and went towards the estate – reports Ewa Sikora, spokeswoman for the police in Mikołów.
The services arrived at the scene. The policemen started looking for a driver.
– On the basis of the license plate numbers, they quickly identified the owner of the car, and he indicated to whom he borrowed it. The policemen reached the driver the same night – says Sikora.
The owner of lanos and the 30-year-old who was supposed to drive a car on the night of Sunday to Monday are citizens of Ukraine, permanently living in Ornontowice. There was probably no one else in the car.
– It seems that the vehicle was driven by a man whom the owner of the building saw in the passenger seat. Probably during the collision he was thrown from the driver’s seat to the passenger seat. The impact force was high, as can be seen from the damage to the vehicle. The police have secured blood traces on the steering wheel for tests, which will verify this version, explains the spokeswoman.
The 30-year-old was detained before 4 a.m. and tested with a breathalyzer. Two hours after the incident, he had over 1.7 per mille of alcohol.
The gutter and a fragment of metal roof tiles were damaged in the building. The property’s fence was also destroyed.
