Wild animals on the Kanonenstrasse

About €9,200 of damage are estimated to have been caused when a 29-year-old driver braked to avoid hitting wild animals on the Kanonenstraße.

The driver was travelling along the road towards Oberursel in his Mitsubishi at around 5.20am on Thursday, 30th October, 2014, when he noticed a herd of wild animals standing on the road.  He braked so hard, that the car skidded and hit the crash barrier.

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.

An accident on the Kanonenstraße between the Sandplacken and Applausekurve left one person injured and caused €9,000 of damage on Monday morning (26th May, 2014).

The 54-year-old driver of the Mercedes transporter was unhurt, but police closed the road off until 10.15am to allow the vehicles to be removed and the escaped fuel to be cleared up.
