Minister gets out safe from car accident

ECONOMY Minister Ľubomír Jahnátek was involved in a car accident on February 5 morning, but escaped without any visible injuries.

The accident happened shortly before 07:30 on a section of the D1 freeway between Senec (Bratislava region) and Bratislava. Jahnáek's driver was forced to brake sharply to avoid hitting the car in front of him. The car behind Jahnátek's, however, was unable to stop quickly enough, and crashed into the back of the minister's official vehicle.

"Seven cars were involved in the accident. The total damage is estimated at Sk800,000 (€23,000). The damage to the minister's car is estimated at Sk200,000," Bratislava police spokesperson Dáša Kolárova told TASR.

Jahnátek arrived in Bratislava half an hour behind schedule in a replacement car. Despite the accident, he kept to his programme, opening the International Conference on the Future of the Jaslovské Bohunice Nuclear Plant.
