18-year-old driver hits teens, leading to one fatality

An 18-year-old driver was involved in an accident on Friday in north Bohemia which killed one pedestrian and injured two others. Those hit were three girls in their early teens, who had been walking by the roadside. The two survivors are in intensive care. The driver had a four-month-old licence. A breathalyser test ruled out alcohol as a factor in the accident, but police have revealed that the technical state of the vehicle was not in order.
