A 35-YEAR-OLD woman was run over on a pedestrian crossing by former MP Víťazoslav Móric in north-west Slovakia on the morning of October 19. She died later at the hospital.
The accident happened in Považská Bystrica, only a few metres from where Slovak actor Štefan Skrúcaný killed a pedestrian in a car accident last June.
Móric is a former lawmaker for the SNS, a nationalist party which failed to qualify for parliament at the 2002 general election.
His typically controversial contributions to political debate included the suggestion that Slovakia's Roma minority be kept in reservations.
Police found no alcohol in the MP's blood but intend to charge him with reckless driving.
