A car rammed into a large group of children aged from 5 to 12 years near the town of Poprad in north-eastern Slovakia, injuring 12 children, police Spokesman Daniel Jobanik told reporters.

“The driver from the Kezmarok city was practically uninjured in the incident; there was no alcohol in his blood. Apparently, his car skidded when turning, and it rolled over onto its roof and crashed into a large group of Roma children passing by,” Daniel Jobanik told reporters.

Two kids are severely injured; four of them have moderately severe traumas. The others were slightly injured, he stated.

According to the police spokesman, two rescue helicopters and several ambulances were engaged in order to help children. All the injured are now delivered to the Poprad district hospitals. 

Police hasn’t specified possible reasons of the accident.
