Two injured as runaway truck hits election campaign stand in Kutná Hora

18-05-2010

Two people were injured on Tuesday when a runaway truck hit an election campaign stand in Kutná Hora. Social Democrats’ staff were preparing for a speech by the party’s Milan Urban when the lorry evidently started rolling of its own accord across the main square of the central Bohemian town, crashing into the tent-like structure. Mr Urban said the truck belonged to a company that was helping to organise the Social Democrats’ stump meetings. The party is expected to come first in elections at the end of next week.
