A priest, his wife and their three children are among those injured. The road was covered by snow at the time of the crash.

A serious car crash took place on Saturday morning on National Road 21 near Drajna locality, Calarasi County. A person was killed and three others were injured. A pregnant woman was among those injured. On the basis of preliminary information it seems the driver of a Dacia car failed to observe a utility vehicle’s right of way. Traffic was stopped for half an hour in the area while the victims were extricated.
A deadly accident took place on National Road 7 too, outside Simeria. An 18-year-old girl was crossing the street on a pedestrian crossing when she was hit by a minibus. The impact threw her in front of a motor coach that dragged her for 32 meters, adevarul.ro informs.

A woman was hit and seriously wounded by a car on a pedestrian crossing in Calarasi on Saturday evening. Mihaela Adriana Stan, spokesperson of the Calarasi County Police Inspectorate, stated that by the time police officers arrived on the scene the driver had fled. Nine passengers were injured when the minibus they were traveling in was hit by a car in Giurgiu County. The car crash took place on Saturday evening, on County Road 601, between Bolintin-Deal and Ciorogarla localities.


A drunk driver that hit a pedestrian on the night of Friday to Saturday in Gaesti, Dambovita County, took the victim home. The incident comes against the backdrop in which violent traffic incidents have increased lately. An eye-witness called the police. When questioned by investigators the driver claimed that the injured pedestrian refused to be taken to hospital, however the pedestrian states he has no recollection of what happened after he was hit by the car. The victim was eventually taken to the Emergency Hospital in Targoviste. Further investigations revealed that the driver had an alcohol blood content of 0.51 milligrams.


A 21-year-old medical student who was the victim of a road accident in Cotnari reached the ‘St. John’ Emergency Hospital in Iasi after eight hours during which he was transferred between several hospitals. Dr. Tudor Ciuhodaru, from the hospital’s emergency unit, pointed out that the young man suffered multiple traumas and there is the risk of major complications because of the time wasted without an emergency intervention. “The mending that consists of shutting down and merging hospitals in Iasi has to be re-analyzed because it doesn’t solve the problem of patients being transferred between hospitals and it only hikes the time needed in order to access hospital treatment and the cost incurred by using ambulances to transfer patients throughout Iasi,” Tudor Ciuhodaru stated.
