17-year-old drives drunk, without a license, injures five

A 17-year-old intoxicated driver without a license caused an accident in which five people were injured over the weekend, a police spokeswoman said on Sunday. The youth was speeding and lost control of the car, which swerved into the opposite lane crashing into an oncoming Škoda. The traffic police are out in force for the three day Easter weekend. In addition to more people drinking and driving during the Easter holidays, police say there is also a danger of slippery roads since nighttime lows are expected to drop to freezing point.
