In Targówek, there was a collision of two passenger cars, which resulted in a rollover. One of the drivers was supposed to cause a collision while escaping from another vehicle and then walk away. It turned out he was drunk.
The collision took place near the intersection of Rolanda and Sternhela streets. – A Renault vehicle, which was driving a Fiat 500, was involved in the whole incident. Its driver was most likely running away. On the way, it hit a Volkswagen, and then turned over to its side – reports Edyta Adamus from the Warsaw Police Headquarters.
On site, apart from the police, there are also two fire brigades and an ambulance service. As Adamus reports, no one was hurt. – The Fiat was driven by a man under the influence of alcohol. He had 0.7 per mille in exhaled air – he adds. Earlier, the police reported that the man escaped from a crashed car.
As Łukasz Płaskociński from the Municipal Headquarters of the State Fire Service told us, Fiat rolled over as a result of the collision.
Unofficial: the collision happened while overtaking
Our reporter, Tomasz Zieliński, collected witnesses’ reports on the course of the collision. – The cars drove down Roland Street. At one point, the Fiat driver began to overtake the Volkswagen as it turned into Sternhel Street. It hit the side of this vehicle, bounced and hit the curb, then rolled over, he describes. The man was to be detained by people from Renault after a walk away.
The police continue to explain the circumstances of the case and do not reveal any details about the reason for Renault’s pursuit of the Fiat. As our reporter learned unofficially, one of the people driving the car is intoxicated, while the other claims that she did not drive the vehicle.
