The driver of a minibus running on the “Dondușeni-Sudarca” route died after the vehicle collided with a truck. A girl aged 11 travelling on the minibus suffered serious injuries.
Svetlana Talpă, press officer of the Dondușeni Police Inspectorate, has told IPN that the accident occurred on the road bypassing Dondușeni town, at the intersection with the road going to Plop village. The minibus driver most probably didn’t make sure it was safe when entering the intersection and was struck laterally by a semitrailer truck.
As a result of the impact, the minibus overturned and ended up in a roadside ditch. The injured driver and girl were rushed to the hospital by an ambulance. The man died in the intensive care unit of the Dondușeni District Hospital. The girl was taken to the Edineț District Hospital.
The truck driver didn’t need medical care.
