Presidential car in fatal crash

A PRESIDENTIAL car was involved in an accident on June 2 that led to the death of a woman.

The accident took place in the eastern Slovak town of Košice. One of President Rudolf Schuster's cars carrying some of his bodyguards crashed into a Škoda Felicia on its passenger side, causing serious injuries to the woman who sat inside. She later died in hospital.

Police said the accident happened after the Škoda's driver, a 62-years-old man, did not allow the presidential car into the crossing before him, but the driver's son, Marek Švec, who was inside the Škoda at the time of the crash, said the president's car was probably speeding.

"My father let one car go first. Then he saw this other car, but it was very far away. As soon as he went out into the crossing, that car crashed into his car. It must have been speeding," Ševc told the daily Národná obroda. Police are investigating the accident.
