“The collision of a motorcycle with an oncoming car was reported to the medical operations center shortly before half past eight in the evening. We immediately sent the nearest ground crew from Kaplice to the accident and a helicopter also took off. The injured man remained unconscious after the impact and his vital functions failed. Paramedics tried to revive him and provided him with resuscitation care. Unfortunately, his injuries were so serious that he succumbed to them despite all our efforts,” informed Zuzana Fajtlová, spokeswoman for the Medical Rescue Service of the South Bohemian Region.

According to the police, a 26-year-old driver was riding a Yamaha motorcycle in the direction from Blansko to Kaplica. “When passing through a right-hand bend, probably due to high speed, he started to fall on his side with his motorcycle, drove into the opposite direction and collided with an oncoming Mazda car. The motorcycle caught fire,” described police spokeswoman Štěpánka Schwarzová. The driver of the car was driving alone and was not injured in the accident. “The exact causes and circumstances of the accident are being investigated by the Český Krumlov traffic police.
