An 18 year old woman has died in a collision between a train and a driving exam car. According to police reports, the exam car entered an unguarded railway crossing in Zaskale, Lesser Poland, before warning signals lit up. While negotiating the crossing, the car’s engine stalled. The examiner managed to save his life by escaping from the car before it was hit by the incoming train. The examinee, who remained in the car, had to be airlifted to the hospital in critical condition, where she passed away.
While the Police mention that examiners are responsible for any accidents that may happen during a driving exam, the case is being examined by a prosecutor, who will decide if any charges will be filed.
