The police are explaining the circumstances of the accident which took place on the national road number 48 in Podlodowo (Lubelskie Voivodeship). During the overtaking, a passenger car rolled over there and two people were injured. One of the drivers did not stop and drove away from the scene.
The incident took place on Saturday after 5 o’clock. According to the findings of the police, the 45-year-old driver decided to overtake another car.
– Most likely, at the same time, the driver of the vehicle being overtaken undertook a maneuver to avoid a dead animal lying on the road. The driver of the Toyota, wanting to avoid a collision, turned the steering wheel to the left and lost control of the vehicle, and then rolled over in a roadside ditch – relates senior aspirant Agnieszka Marchlak from the police in Ryki. And he adds that two people – the driver and the passenger – were injured and were taken to the hospital.
