What did the prosecutor's office finally determine? – The procedural activities carried out during this investigation show that the man driving the bicycle was traveling in the opposite lane to the bus involved in the incident. During the evasive maneuver, the cyclist drove into the opposite lane, resulting in a collision with the bus – describes Banna.

– Due to failure to exercise due caution, the cyclist lost control of the bicycle, which led to a collision. As a result, there was a collision with the bus. The bus driver was driving properly – adds the spokesman.

The man driving the bus at the scene of the incident was tested for alcohol content in exhaled air. He was sober. – The person exercising the rights of the deceased injured party filed a complaint against the above decision. The District Court in Piaseczno, examining this complaint, upheld the prosecutor's decision, which means that it has become final – concluded the spokesman.
