Two cars overturned in a roadside field and three people were injured in a crash on the Montana-Lom road last night, the Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Interior in Montana announced.

At 18:55 while driving from Montana to Lom near the village of Rasovo, an incapacitated driver from the village of Zamfir with an Audi A4 overtook overtaking, but did not leave enough distance and hit the side-overtaken Volkswagen Passat with a 20-year-old man from Lom. After the impact, the two cars became unsteered and successively went off the road, overturning into a field near the roadway.

Three people were injured – the incapacitated driver suffered a broken pelvis and numerous other fractures, and the driver and a 54-year-old passenger from the other car suffered bodily injuries and bruises. All three were hospitalized in Lom. Due to the serious condition of the driver who caused the crash, he was not tested for alcohol and the other driver's sample was negative.

Pre-trial proceedings under Article 343 of the Criminal Code have been initiated in the case, the Montana Police Directorate said.
