A 78-year-old driver behind the wheel of an Opel Corsa died on Thursday in Tabor when her vehicle was struck by another car driven by a local politician under the influence. Police arrested Aleš Lachout after testing and finding proof of alcohol in his blood. The accident took place at around 10 PM. The suspect is likely to be charged with drink driving, negligence resulting in death and for failing to provide first aid. The local branch of the party Mr Lachout was affiliated with has said it will expel him from its ranks.
