A car crossed the wall of a building, in Balneário Camboriú, Santa Catarina, and fell in the middle of the street, hitting four people, on Monday (16).
The image captured by monitoring cameras, which shows the car collapsing on the street, where three women are with a baby stroller, went viral on social media. Part of the construction also collapsed when the vehicle fell, hitting a woman who was seriously injured and is in a state of health considered serious.
In the video, you can see the driver opening the car door and getting out of the vehicle.
When traffic officers arrived, the driver was no longer at the scene. Competent bodies such as SAMU, Military Police, Civil Defense and the Fire Department were called to attend to the injured.
From what has been reported, the 69-year-old driver does not own the vehicle, and was just maneuvering the car, with Paraguay plates, at the time of the accident.
The Civil Police launched an inquiry to determine the reasons for the accident. The driver was heard and passed the breathalyzer test, which was negative. It was not possible to verify the omission of help or the flight from the accident site, considering that the driver also suffered a strong impact from the fall, is elderly, and needed medical attention.
According to the driver’s report, he “blacked out” and only regained consciousness after the collision. He has not yet been charged with the crime of bodily injury, as one of the victims already heard did not want to make criminal representation. The seriously injured woman will be heard afterwards, and will be able to choose to represent criminally.
