On the highway in Poland, near the checkpoint in Korchova, an accident occurred, in which Ukrainians were injured, including children and pregnant women.

This is reported on the website of the Subcarpathian Police.

It is known that 5 cars were involved in the accident.

Previously, the 56-year-old BMW driver lost control on the snowy road, hit the protective barriers and flew into the Hyundai. 

An Audi car was driving behind the BMW, which also did not adjust the safe distance and drove into the right lane, where it crashed into the Volvo and Kia parked there.

As a result of the accident, three Hyundai passengers were injured.

One of the pregnant women was trapped in a car.
