Polish PM Beata Szydlo has suffered minor injuries in a auto accident in the south of the country, officials say.

Local media later said that the incident had happened in the area of Oswiecim in southern Poland, which is widely known as the area of the former Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz.

The 53-year-old prime minister was reportedly riding in a motorcade when another vehicle drove into Szydlo's black Audi limousine.

Government spokesman Rafal Bochenek said Szydlo was in "good condition" but had been transported 350 kilometers (215 miles) by helicopter to a government hospital in Warsaw for further monitoring and tests.

"This is the third serious accident including the country's most important officials over the past year". In November, a motorcade including Szydlo, ministers of foreign affairs, defense, sports and family, labor and social policy, had an accident in Israel.

He declined to say how many days Szydlo is expected to spend in hospital.
