Dangerous driving in Ruda Śląska. The driver of the Opel ignored the red light, ran across the pedestrian crossing just in front of the car’s hood and hit the road in the opposite direction of travel. We can see such a situation in the recording we received on Kontakt24. According to the police, the 43-year-old was behind the wheel. She had almost one and a half per mille of alcohol in her body, and another driver prevented her from driving.
The incident, recorded by Ms Agata’s car camera, took place on September 29, around 4 p.m. at the exit from the A4 route to 1 Maja street – Wirek-Halemba junction. Agata sent us a video on Contact24. As she was driving on a dual carriageway through a traffic light intersection – where she had the green light – suddenly a white Opel rolled out on the right-hand side, just in front of the hood of her car. According to Agata, there was a woman behind the wheel.
We can see that the Opel driver not only ignores the red light and enforces priority, but crosses the perpendicular road through the island that separates the road and through the pedestrian crossing. – It happened very fast. All I could do was brake it hard. The driver almost hit me. I was afraid that the car behind me would have time to brake to avoid a collision, but there was no bump – says the author of the recording.
The crazy ride didn’t end there. The webcam registered that the Opel turned right on the adjacent road and continued to drive against the tide. At the end of the video, he returned to the road in the correct direction.
Agata: – After this incident, I was driving slower. I saw the woman pull over to the side of the road later, but no one stopped.
Then she mowed the road sign and was drunk
According to the police, the driver of the Opel was detained shortly after the situation from the recording happened. After 4 p.m., a driver of another car stopped by a white Opel, which mowed a road sign on Wyzwolenia Street. It is a block on 1 Maja Street, it turns right into it – near the point where Agata’s recording ends.
– There was a 43-year-old woman behind the wheel. The driver stopped to help her. But when he saw the condition of the woman, he took her keys and alerted the servants. He made a civic detention. The driver had almost one and a half per milliliter of alcohol in the body – says Arkadiusz Ciozak, spokesman for the police in Ruda Śląska.
