At half past six in the morning, the police received a report of a traffic accident on Polanecká Street in Ostrava-Svinov. From the preliminary information obtained on the spot, they found that the driver of a passenger vehicle coming from the side road apparently did not give way to the garbage truck that was driving on the main road, which led to their collision. The vehicles subsequently ended up in a ditch.
