The police are investigating the accident at the scene, we are waiting for their report and will, of course, supplement it once we receive it.

According to witnesses, the accident should have occurred when the driver of the BMW was driving towards Vlkov, according to his words, he probably fell asleep, drove in the opposite direction and hit the Audi car head-on. This man was also the only one to escape without injury.

Undoubtedly, a big thank you goes to the paramedic or paramedic who happened to be passing by on his day off, stopped at the accident, started organizing rescue work and attended to the injured child himself.

Update:

“Since this afternoon, we have been dealing with a traffic accident that occurred on road No. I/19. The driver of a BMW vehicle, born in 2000, was driving in the direction of travel from Pilsen to Spálené Poříčí. According to the facts established so far, due to a microsleep, he passed in front of the village of Vlkov to in the opposite direction, where he collided head-on with an oncoming Audi factory vehicle driven by a driver born in 1994.
Three people in a BMW born in 1993, 2001, 1976 and three people in an Audi born in 1994, 2018 and 1998 were injured in the traffic accident.
The breath test performed on the BMW driver was negative, the Audi driver could not be tested due to his injuries, and a blood sample was therefore ordered to determine whether he was under the influence of alcohol while driving.”
the police spokeswoman added, adding that the case was taken over on the spot by criminal investigators from the Plzeň – Rural Department, who continue to investigate the cause and other circumstances of the accident.

Communication was completely closed for the duration of the rescue work.
