Police confirmed on Tuesday evening that Romanian Transports minister Ludovic Orban hit a person in the car accident he was involved in on Sunday, but added that the parents of the victim did not file any complaint. Orban and the police had previously dismissed claims of a victim, which first appeared on a blog.

Witnesses first quoted by the blog suggested Orban might have been drunk when driving the car when he crashed into another car on Sunday. But Orban failed to show up at the police for more than 24 hours as law demands - but showed up eventually on Monday.

Interior Ministry officials are investigating the case.

Sources quoted by Romanian news station Antena 3 say that the victim is a minor aged 14 who has been injured at one of her arm. The girl lives nearby the place the accident took place.
