Two accidents whilst leaving parking spaces

Two accidents that took place in Oberursel on Friday, 17th May, 2013 happened when cars were being driven out of parking spaces.

The first happened in the Holzweg car park, where the driver who was leaving a space frontwards oversaw a car that was passing by.  The car had to be towed out and the total damage is estimated at around €2,150.

Later on in the day, another car was being backed out of a space in the Kumeliusstraße, when it hit a grey Mercedes Benz parked at the side of the ride.  The driver who had been backing out left the scene of the accident without taking care of the damage, but the number plate of his car was noted by a witness who passed the information on to police.  The driver, whose car was not damaged, was later found by police.  The damage to the Mercedes is estimated at around €1,000.
