Brno, Jan 28 (BD) – A serious accident took place in the 236km exit area of the D1 motorway on Sunday, shortly after 9pm, in the vicinity of Vyskov. The driver of a yellow passenger car travelling in the direction of Ostrava apparently missed their turning, and, after a short pause at the side of the motorway, attempted to rectify the situation by reversing dangerously in the inside lane.
This manoeuvre impeded the driver behind, a mother with her three children, who was forced off the road, crashing into a ditch and injuring everyone inside. The unidentified driver of the yellow vehicle left the scene in the direction of Ivanovice na Hané, without stopping to check whether anyone was injured or contacting the emergency services.
According to Petr Vala, the police are seeking information from the public: “We are asking the general public for help. Do you know the reversing driver? Do you have any information on the yellow vehicle? Contact us on the emergency line 158. We are also looking for important witness testimony from the two drivers who drove past the scene immediately before the accident. They can speak directly to police officers from the motorway department of Ivanovice na Hané on 974 639 765.”
