“On Friday afternoon, the police carried out a roadside check with radar, during which they measured a higher speed for a passing biker on a Honda motorcycle. They followed him, overtook him, and tried to stop him with a warning light. However, the biker reacted by turning his motorcycle in the opposite direction, where he gradually collided with two cars while driving in the opposite direction, “said a police spokeswoman. She also pointed out that it was subsequently found that the motorcyclist had a driving ban.
The accident occurred on Friday shortly after 5 pm on the D48 motorway, which had to be closed to traffic for some time.
“Rescuers at the scene of the accident also treated four other people who were traveling in cars. There were two women and two children. With minor to moderate injuries, mainly in the chest area, they were transported to the accident clinic of the Frýdek-Místek hospital, “said Lukáš Humpl, a spokesman for the Moravian-Silesian rescuers.
