“In the morning, a tragic traffic accident occurred on the railway overpass on the road between the villages of Ladce and Košeca, Ilava district. Due to its documentation, the I/61 road was impassable for several hours,” informs the police on Facebook.

What has happened?

Based on what has been found so far, the traffic accident probably occurred when the driver of a Suzuki Jimmy, who was driving in the direction of the village of Košeca, skidded due to ice, as a result of which he crossed into the opposite direction of the road.

“Here he collided with an oncoming bus, which after the collision was thrown into the guardrails of the bridge. The bus driver, while trying to prevent the vehicle from falling over the guardrails by balancing the steering, collided with a Ford Tranzit.” supply the lawmen.

“The bus driver and 6 passengers were not injured in the accident. The driver of the Ford Tranzit suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. Despite the efforts of all emergency services, the 74-year-old driver of Suzuki Jimmy succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the accident.” noted the lawmen.

Police message

The breath test of the bus driver was negative. Due to the impossibility of performing a breath test, a blood sample was ordered for the driver of the Ford Tranzit to determine the consumption of alcohol.

In order to clarify the circumstances under which the accident occurred, a forensic expert from the road transport department was brought into the investigation. writes the police.

“We ask drivers to be more careful when driving at this time of year. The days are shorter, the roads are often slippery and visibility is often reduced due to fog or rain. Therefore, it is essential that drivers adapt their driving to the current weather conditions and not take unnecessary risks,” the police inform people.
