Although pedestrians were struck, in one case a child, the consequences were not serious.
“At 5:59 a.m. we were going out to Podbranská Street, where he and his wife, year 1971, collided with a car at a pedestrian crossing at a speed of up to 20 km/h. The woman suffered an injury to her leg and face, and was taken to the Klatovská hospital for further treatment,” said the regional spokeswoman rescuers Mária Svobodová.

To Klatovsk hospital a 12-year-old girl was also on her way to be checked, and at 7:39 a.m. she was hit by a car that was just starting off at a low speed in Plánická street near the school at the crossing. The girl fell to her knees after the impact. The city police patrol was the first to arrive at the accident, adding recommendations as well. “The accident happened when the lights had already gone out, but it was quite dark due to the rainy weather. It is therefore necessary to think about it on the part of drivers, but also pedestrians. We definitely recommend reflective elements,” said the commander of the Municipal Police in Klatovy, Luboš Steinbach.
