The accident happened after 22:00 on the 40th kilometer of the highway in the direction of Turnov. The passenger car collided with the pedestrian and crushed other vehicles. "One of them ended up on the roof," Richter said. The man who led the bike was taken to hospital with wounded rescuers.
Under the Road Traffic Act the motorway is only intended for motor vehicles. Pedestrians and cyclists are not allowed on the highway. If they do, they will be fined up to a few thousand.
For example, if a cyclist harms property or health, the investigator can change the qualification to a criminal offense, where he or she can stay in jail for up to several years if he is convicted.
