“The seventy-six-year-old cyclist on an electric bike when going down the hill did not adapt the driving speed to his abilities, the characteristics of the bike and the traffic technical condition and nature of the road. “While passing a slight right-hand turn, he went in the opposite direction, where he collided with an oncoming Fiat Ducato,” said police spokesman Libor Hejtman.

Despite immediate first aid, the senior died on the spot. A breath test for alcohol was negative for the driver of the Fiat.
