Hockey legend Jaromir Jagr’s Kia EV6 T-boned by tram

Former NHL legend Jaromir Jagr at last hung up his Stateside skates at the conclusion of the 2017-2018 year right after an absurdly extensive vocation, but the 50-year-old however performs hockey in his native Czech Republic. He took to Instagram early Wednesday to get the word out about a crash he experienced while driving his Kia EV6. Seems that he did not have sufficient time to distinct a established of tram tracks prior to the tram arrived and the large-velocity shuttle whacked his car or truck in the driver’s aspect doorway. He posted a photograph of the car with the smashed door and blown airbags.

His complete caption, by using Google Translate, is: 

“Pricey followers, and absolutely everyone else. I would just like to tell you briefly what transpired nowadays when I was associated in the incident. It was my oversight.

“On Plzeňská, I tried out to cross from a single direction to another. I checked the other side and drove into it at the ideal time. But there was a whole lot of site visitors and I did not have time to react to the tram, which was heading at large speed in the exact same path as me. I observed her half a meter in entrance of me, at the final minute. I considered it was my conclusion.

“I have usually considered that force majeure has a hand over me, and now I have noticed it once again. Thank God!

“And it also surprised me and actually saved my Kia, from which, irrespective of what it appeared like, I climbed out without personal injury. But most importantly, practically nothing took place to the travellers on the tram. I would like to close this sad event. And I thank all people for their knowing and also for their help to individuals who intervened on the place.”

Reports say that local police done a breathalyzer take a look at at the scene and that the consequence arrived back unfavorable. The New York Article wrote that even though Jagr “a little wounded one of his arms and was noticed limping although leaving an ambulance,” he declined a ride to the medical center. Wanting at the door of the EV6, it is spectacular that Jagr felt spry ample to wander absent and text. It is also a testament to modern motor vehicle basic safety the Kia seems to be like the “following” picture of the 2022 EV6 put by means of Europe’s NCAP facet pole test, which slides a automobile into a rigid pole at 20 mph. 

We are glad Jagr and anyone are fine, and we hope this is just not a new annual craze. Last 12 months, golfer Tiger Woods proved how safe the Genesis GV80 is, now hockey participant Jagr has tested the EV6 in a authentic-entire world accident. Here is to hoping no athlete completes the Hyundai Group trifecta with a Hyundai in 2023.
