The passengers in the car suffered minor bodily injuries, and one child was injured, reports Subotica.com.
All the injured were taken to the hospital.
The red “Citoren C3”, which was coming along Sencanski put about ten meters in front of the traffic light, gradually, moving at normal speed, started to descend from the road to the pedestrian path and hit directly into a large traffic light with vertical and horizontal lights, it was stated.
Due to the force of the impact, the traffic light collapsed and fell on the road in one part, while the other remained on the pedestrian path. On that occasion, one pedestrian was injured – a child, for whom it is still unknown what degree of injuries he suffered.
In addition to the driver, there were two other elderly people in the vehicle that landed off the road. They are slightly injured.
The child was allegedly helped by a fellow citizen who moved him off the street and comforted him that everything would pass quickly. The ambulance came very quickly and first took the child away, and then other ambulances started taking care of the other injured. All of them were transported to the hospital for further rehabilitation of injuries.
As Subotica.com unofficially reports, the vehicle that caused the traffic accident was driven by an 85-year-old man and it is suspected that he got sick while driving.
Workers of “Selma”, a company that maintains traffic light signaling, quickly came to the scene, and at the first inspection of the damage, they determined that they would not be able to repair the traffic light today because the damage was too great.
