– We know that the BMW driver on ul. Socrates traveled at a speed of around 130 km / hour. The braking distance can be seen at least 30 m before the pedestrian crossing, which shows that the driver sees the pedestrian, but because of his speed he cannot react – said asukasz Puchalski, director of the City Road Authority in Warsaw after meeting with the accident commission. On what basis the speed is calculated, the director of ZDM does not say. It is known that the BMW driver stopped about 50 meters behind the pedestrian crossing.
The Metropolitan Police does not hide surprises with information from the City Road Administration. – I emphasize that I do not know the speed of 130 km / hour. That is not the result of the accumulation process material. The opinions we are waiting for will primarily be based on all data that can only be accessed by investigators and experts who issue opinions – said Virtual Poland Sylwester Marczak, spokesman for the capital police.
Łukasz Łapczyński, a spokesman for the prosecutor's office, spoke in the same tone on Tuesday. – We are waiting for the expert report. This is not a problem one, but at least a few days – said WP Łapczyński.
