The accident happened shortly after half past eight, when a 77-year-old driver of a Seat Ibiza, coming from the side road, did not give way to the ash car, which was driving on the main road.
The driver of the passenger car did not drive at all, the driver of the passenger car got out unharmed, but his two passengers in the cabin were injured, police spokeswoman Eva Michalkov said.
Rescuers sent those cars to the scene of the accident. When the firemen freed the 77-year-old man from the vehicle, we started resuscitation. When the medic intervened, he discovered multiple injuries that were not compatible with life, and then had to declare the patient dead, informed spokesman Luk Humpl.
Humpl told the two injured from the ash vehicle that he was 45 years old and suffered an injury to his back and whip, and 21 years old he had problems with his hand. Both patients were transported to the Ostrava Faculty Hospital, where they were saved by an emergency call and an ambulance, the spokesman said.
Firefighters from two units first tried to rescue the unconscious person from the car. Then, with the help of the front winch of the tank, they pulled out the personal vehicle, and with the rope from the rear winch from the Bizon pivoting special, they got the ash truck back on the road. They finally cleaned up the scene of the accident.
