The prosecutor’s office has the results of blood tests of a 27-year-old driver who hit a 22-year-old woman and her three-year-old son at a pedestrian crossing in Puławy (Lublin Voivodeship). It turned out that the man was not under the influence of drugs. Now the prosecutor’s office will appoint an expert to determine the speed at which the man was driving. The force of the impact was so great that the pedestrians were airborne in a split second.
Although the breathalyzer test did not show the presence of alcohol in the 27-year-old driver’s body, blood was taken from him for testing for the content of other intoxicants.
– We got the results. The tests did not reveal the presence of either alcohol or drugs – says Agnieszka Kępka, spokesman for the District Prosecutor’s Office in Lublin.
A speeding car hit the pedestrians
The accident occurred at the end of August in Puławy. The police then published a video showing what happened at the pedestrian crossing. It shows a speeding BMW car entering the crossing and hitting a woman with a child. The force is so great that pedestrians are in the air in a fraction of a second.
Behind the wheel of the BMW was a 27-year-old man, who was charged by the prosecutor’s office with intentionally violating safety rules in land traffic because he entered the crossing when the red light was on.
They will appoint an expert. It is to determine the speed at which the BMW driver was driving
The man pleaded guilty. According to the investigators, he explained that he had been staring and that he was very sorry.
– Now we will appoint a road traffic expert to reconstruct the accident and determine the speed at which the driver was driving – says Kępka.
As we wrote in Septemberthe injured 22-year-old woman had a damaged nose and cut face, and her son had a fractured skull.
As Piotr Rybak, director of the Independent Public Health Care Center in Puławy, commented, the pedestrians were extremely lucky, and the doctors talked about how the accident ended for the mother and child as a miracle.
