Porsche cars damaged in parking mistake

On Friday, 14th July, 2017 at 6pm a 21-year-old driver was leaving a parking space at the Audi centre in the Willy-Brandt-Straße.  Although they wanted to reverse their Ford Focus out of the space, they put it in the wrong gear and drove forwards instead.

The car then rolled about 20m before going down an embankment, where it hit two fences that fell over and damaged two Porsche cars in the process.

The damage to the three cars and the fence is estimated at €16,000 in total.

Cars windows damaged

On the night of the 22nd March, 2016, a BMW in the Wiesenaustraße, a Ford Galaxy in the “Kleine Schmieh” and a Mercedes E-Class were either broken into or an attempt was made.

In each case those responsible forced one of the side windows in an attempt to cause them to shatter.

Nothing was stolen from the vehicles, but the damage is estimated at €2,000.

Car flipped over on the Kanonenstraße

Monday evening (26th May, 2014) saw another accident on the Kanonenstraße.  A Ford Ranger, being driven by a 50-year-old from Schmitten was travelling up the hill Oberursel towards the Sandplacken.

At the 6.3km point at the end of a left-hand bend the driver appears to have lost control of the vehicle, which police suggest may be due to travelling too fast on the wet road.  The car skidded of the road, hitting the crash barrier and flipping over, injuring the driver and causing €21,000 of damage.
