According to one expert on Hungarian TV2 channel, Eva Varholikova-Rezesova may not be to blame for the accident that claimed four lives on 21 August on a motorway in Hungary.
Independent licensed appraiser Istvan Toth explained on a TV programme entitled “Will Rezesova escape a jail sentence?” how the blame of Rezesova for the accident might not be as clear cut as first thought. Toth questions the version that she fell asleep at the wheel, due to a bend just before the accident, but also says she could claim the alcohol in her blood was consumed after the actual accident, as she had a bottle of vodka in her car. Toth believes this or similar argument may be used in the case of the defence (she had 1.5 pro mille of alcohol in her blood shortly after the accident).
Toth also noted how the driver of the Fiat punto, in which 3 of the deceased were burned alive, could maybe also have been responsible for the accident by not giving right of way, or for not estimating the 200 kph speed that Rezesova was doing at the time.
The case could now rest on the testimony of unknown witnesses, and the police have even released a description of a Hungarian truck driver who they believe could help clarify the accident, and called for any more witnesses to come forward.
In the meantime, Rezesova’s family have approached the families of the deceased with an offer of financial compensation, which they rejected. Rezesova has been kept in custody and refused bail.
