Three people were seriously injured in the collision of two cars, which happened on Sunday in Oščadnica (district of Čadca).
TASR was informed by Jana Balogová, spokeswoman for the regional office of the police in Zilina. She added that the 24-year-old Volkswagen Golf driver was ahead of him by the coming Mitsubishi Pajero, who led a 30-year-old driver.
"As a precaution, the Volkswagen driver had to take the lead to the right of the Mitsubishi rear wheel, which led to instability of the Mitsubishi, causing the vehicle to come to the left and the side of the car to hit the two houses. From there he descended to a piece of land at a family house, where he ended up on the roof. Mitsubishi, a 30-year-old passenger and a 25-year-old passenger, suffered severe injuries, "said the provincial police spokeswoman.
"The case was taken over by a researcher who accused a 24-year-old driver of Volkswagen Golf of a health crime and the young man offered to take blood and urine for the purpose of detecting sedatives in the body," Balogová said.
