Traffic island in Oberstedten damaged

An accident occurred at the junction of the Niederstedter Straße and Hans-Mess-Straße in Oberstedten on Saturday, 15th July, 2017 at 7.55pm.

The 58-year-old driver of a Volkswagen Lupo entered the roundabout from the Niederstedter Straße and on leaving it damaged the curb of the traffic island.  The damage to the island and the car is estimated to be about €450.

Local police happened to be near and saw the accident happen.  Whilst taking down the details they suspected the driver of being under the influence of alcohol.  It then turned out that the driver did not have a driving license.

A blood sample was taken and the driver can now expect criminal proceeding against them for driving under the influence and without a license.
