A woman and her three-year-old son narrowly avoided tragedy when they were hit by a drunk driver.
They were cycling in Iłowa when a Volvo hit them from behind, on the morning of January 30. The woman initially feared that her son had been seriously injured, but tests at hospital in Żary revealed that his wounds were superficial.
The driver of the Volvo was a 49-year-old man. Police tested his blood for alcohol, and found that he was over the limit.
