ESKİŞEHİR - Doğan News Agency
AA PhotoA woman, who was hit by the car of Nationalist Movement Party (MHP) deputy Faruk Bal’s son, lost her life yesterday.
Bal’s son, Türkmen Ali Bal, was driving his father from a party congress in the central Anatolian province of Eskişehir to Ankara yesterday when he hit a woman and her son, who were crossing the road near Eskişehir’s 71 Evler neighborhood, at around 6 p.m.
The injured mother and child were rushed to Eskişehir’s Osmangazi University Hospital, while Bal was taken to a police station in Eskişehir’s Kurtuluş district, where he testified about the accident.
Türkmen Ali Bal has been released from custody pending trial. A public prosecutor later ordered the release of Bal, who will reportedly stand trial on charges of “causing injury due to negligence.”
The injured 10-year-old, Sefa Oğuz, remains in a critical condition, according to reports.
