Two cyclists – a 41-year-old woman and a 71-year-old man – were struck on Sunday by a driver in the area of Domažlice. The motorist, in a white Octavia, had consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel, police confirmed. The older cyclist was killed instantly, the female died during transport to hospital. Neither of the two were wearing protective helmets, according to reports. The accident took place on a section of road where two women died three years ago. Sixteen cyclists have died on Czech roads so far this year, an increase from 2013; around half of cycling accidents are reportedly caused by motorists.
