According to the same source, the collision resulted injured a man of 54 years that followed the wheel of the car in the opposite direction.
“He was very disoriented and complained of pain in the area of the chest”, said the same, adding that the victim was conducted to the Hospital of St Sebastian at the Fair.
According to a source from the GNR, the man will be entered on the A29 in Vila Nova de Gaia and came out on its own initiative on the node of Estarreja, where the accident occurred, which caused constraints in the transit.
The Guard was, however, advised by multiple drivers to the presence of a vehicle that was circular in the opposite direction, having followed to the location several patrols in order to intercept the driver.
“THE POLICE mounted an operation that involved five patrol cars to do drag for traffic in the opposite direction to the travel of the vehicle in question, so that if there were a collision was not so violent, and in the direction of movement of the vehicle, there were other patrols to intercept, but the operation had no effect,” said the same source.
THE POLICE will report the case to the Public prosecution.
