An unusual case happened in the Chmelná Ski Area. In this case, the accident was not caused by any of the visitors to the area, but by the eighteen-year-old driver of an Audi car, who was supposed to be “driven” to the slope by the navigation system. The driver apparently didn't see anything strange in the whole thing, so he listened to the computer and actually went on the slope, the Czech police commented ironically.
Unfortunately, the driver found out too late that it is not always worth trusting navigation. He could not control the vehicle on the slope. He slipped, hit one of the cable car's poles, or ski lift and his ride ended here.
Accident without injuries, but with high damage
Fortunately, there were no injuries. The police officers performed a breath test on the driver on the spot, which came out with a negative result. The damage caused to the vehicle was estimated at 80,000 euros or more. The damage to the cable car column was calculated at a minimum of 4,000 euros.
Since the incident did not take place on a road, it was not a traffic accident from a legislative point of view. The police registered the case as a damage incident.
