When three cars collided in the morning on the capital’s Western bypass, the driver of one of them, an 85-year-old man of respectable age, died.
Two cars collided, according to police, incapacitating the elderly man, but he died when his car was hit by another a short time later, after failing to maintain a safe speed and stopping the Subaru in time.
In the morning, three Opel, Volkswagen and Subaru cars collided on the capital’s Western Bypass, on Oslo Street, at the turn to Gariūnis. The machines are ground, it seems, beyond repair. The 85-year-old man who drove the Opel died.
“A 38-year-old driver was sitting in the car, who died after the impact. When the medics arrived, they did not have time to revive him,” says police representative Tomas Bražėnas.
Two cars were involved in an accident on a busy city artery from the start. An elderly Opel driver crashed into a Volkswagen. Police officials speculate that the first accident may have occurred due to the old man’s failing health. While the Volkswagen and the Opel remained standing at the scene, the Opel was hit by a Subaru.
“The driver, who was born in 1986, did not choose a safe speed while driving a Subaru car and while driving on the Western Bypass, he hit an Opel car parked next to the road,” says T. Braženias.
By the time the Subaru collided with the Opel, the elderly man’s life had not yet been extinguished, according to the police.
“They were sitting in the car, but, as I mentioned, the Subaru car driving from behind did not choose a safe speed, did not keep the distance and did not manage to stop, hit the Opel again and the driver may have died from that impact,” explains T. Braženias.
The accident caused a traffic jam of several hundred cars on the western bypass. The police regulated the traffic. Officials have launched a pre-trial investigation into the incident. According to preliminary data, all drivers were sober.
