The tragedy occurred on Thursday evening (13 June) near Thorn. A 2-year-old is dead and his 3-year-old brother was hospitalized.
The event took place about 22 in Steklinek. The patrol police in Dobrzejewice noticed a Polo Volkswagen. The police were disturbed by the behavior of the driver who turned the low beam on and off, and after a while began to drive from the right to the left. The car had a steaming rear window.
The officers gave the driver a signal to stop, both in sound and in light, but the driver accelerated – instead of stopping – and ran away. About a dozen kilometers further, the car fell out of the way and was roofed over.
̵1; As it turned out, the vehicle was led by a 25-year-old woman – informed the Podinsp. Violetta Dąbrowska, a spokeswoman for the police in Toruń. – She carried two of her children at the age of 2 and 3 years.
Before the ambulance arrived, the police pulled children out of the car. Workers who pulled out a woman also worked on the site.
Three accident participants were taken to the hospitals of Torun. The doctors could not save the 2-year-old boy.
Dąbrowska: – From the information gathered, the woman never had the power to drive. At the time of the accident she was under the influence of alcohol and probably drugs.
The 25-year-old had more than a mile of alcohol in his body. As they searched the uniform in their purse, they found a bag of white powder. What exactly it is – is shown in the police lab.
In this case, the investigation is monitored by the prosecutor.
