Taking Responsibility: A Story of Accountability on the Road
A recent traffic accident took a turn for the unexpected when the driver involved in the accident not only stopped but also reported the incident to the authorities. According to the General Police Department, the female driver, involved in an accident, halted her vehicle at the scene, contacted the police, and called for paramedics. Demonstrating a commendable sense of responsibility, she remained at the location, lending support to the injured party.
Testing for Intoxication
In line with standard procedures in the aftermath of an accident, the officers administered a breathalyzer test to the driver at the scene. The test results showed no traces of alcohol, indicating the driver was sober at the time of the accident.
Role of the Specialized State Prosecutor’s Office
Due to the driver’s high-ranking position as a public official, the case was subsequently transferred to the Specialized State Prosecutor’s Office, a branch that typically handles incidents involving authorized officials. This move placed actions such as a professional examination, accident handling, and other investigative undertakings under their purview.
Assurances from the General Police Department
The General Police Department assured the public that the police at the scene carried out all the necessary immediate actions usually observed in serious injury accidents. The injured party was promptly transported to the hospital via an ambulance for further treatment, where he remains.
Unofficial sources have suggested that the driver involved in the accident was Melita Močnik, the recently-appointed director of the Kranj Police Administration. These sources also claim that no professional blood test was ordered for Močnik post-accident.

Key points from this incident include the immediate response by the involved driver, her cooperation with the police, and the involvement of the Specialized State Prosecutor’s Office due to her standing as a public official.
