on Friday night he sat behind the drunk driving wheel, went in the opposite direction,
where he fell with another car. His father and son died, his co-pilot
suffered serious injuries. Drivers in the blood measured up to 2.5 per mille of alcohol.
The judge sent him straight to custody.
The tragedies multiplied in the sixth and in the capital. Just a 26 year old driver
changed to red light, collided with another car that later
hit the man on the sidewalk. The accident did not survive the guilty passenger.
The weekend night was fatal for a 32 year old driver who was worth it
probably a quick ride. Front collision with buses in Devinska
New Ves lived it.
