Poland’s president unhurt when his limousine blows a tire
Poland's President Andrzej Duda said he was not hurt when a rear tire blew in the limousine he was riding in Friday, The Washington Post reported.
Officers of the Government Protection Office were driving Duda on the A4 highway when the tire blew, sending the BMW into a grassy ditch. Footage from a passing car that was aired on TVN24 showed a sudden cloud of dirt.
"The car skidded and went into a ditch but nothing happened to anyone," Duda said on TVN24. "Theoretically this should not have happened."
The police are investigating the circumstances.
In 2010, President Lech Kaczynski was killed in a plane crash in Russia. His twin brother, Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who now leads Poland's ruling party, blames the crash on Moscow.
