A man is being questioned by police over a hit-and-run collision that led to the death of a pedestrian and left her seven-year-old son in a critical condition. The incident occurred on Saturday afternoon in the Moravian town of Opava. The police managed to track down the driver, who is 33, two hours after he fled the scene; they suspect he was under the influence of both alcohol and meta-amphetamine.
