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 20-year-old driver of a VW Polo was travelling downhill from the Sandplacken just before 8am when her car skidded in a right-hand bend due to the road being wet.  She collided with a transporter travelling in the opposite direction, sustaining bruising and grazes in the process.

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.
