On Tuesday morning, there was currently a completely unusual traffic accident on the road between Slaný and Velvary. This was caused by a piece of ice falling from the roof of an oncoming van that broke the windshield. Police are now searching for the culprit who escaped from the scene of the accident.
An unknown driver driving in the direction from the village of Slaný to Velvary caused an accident due to his negligence. It did not sufficiently clean the top of the truck from icing. A piece of ice released spontaneously while driving and hit the windshield of the oncoming Ford Transit with a sharp impact.
The damage was estimated by the insurance company at CZK 20,000. The irresponsible truck driver left the scene immediately after the accident. Fortunately, no personal injuries occurred.
The damaged driver had an on-board camera installed on his car, which recorded the whole incident. Police are therefore asking citizens who would recognize the truck on the record to contact them on line 158 to help identify the unruly driver.
The incident should be a warning to anyone who neglects to clean their vehicle. Always remove this snow layer thoroughly before driving. The most important is the windshield for a proper view. Drivers should not rely on the fan to heat the window while driving, as it may fog and reduce visibility. When cleaning the windows, do not forget about frozen wipers.
Headlights are similarly important. Covered snow significantly reduces their luminosity. To identify the vehicle while driving, it is necessary to have the entire registration plate visible. The inspection of the side mirrors should be a matter of course.
The incident in the Kladno region is also a warning for drivers of vans and vehicles with a tarpaulin roof, who are in danger of forming a continuous piece of ice. This can become loose due to speed, but also braking and unevenness on the road and cause serious damage.
