According to law enforcement officials, the lives of the victims are not in danger.

“The BMW driver smells alcohol from his mouth. Biological samples were taken from him to establish the state of intoxication. He is currently in the hospital,” the report said.

Investigators say that the man did not have the right to drive a car of the appropriate category, for which he was already prosecuted. In addition, he was previously also held administratively liable for drunken driving and criminally liable for illegal possession of a vehicle.
