Accident in Schulstrasse damaged water pipe

Police in Oberursel were called to the Schulstraße at 23:17 on Tuesday, 16th January, 2018 after reports of a “fountain” following a road traffic accident.

Apparently a vehicle hit a temporary pipe on the pavement that was carrying water to a nearby building site.  The driver left the scene of the accident without dealing with the damage, which is estimated to be at around several hundred Euros.

Witnesses reported the pipe had been broken, leaving water spurting several metres up into the air.  This was still the case when police arrived.

They were unable to stop the flow, and called for someone from the local waterworks (Stadtwerke) to attend, who subsequently turned off the water to the whole street.

Anyone with information as to who caused the accident is asked to call police in Oberursel on 06171 62400.

Her dog, a Havenese, was also attacked and underwent an emergency operation at an animal clinic.
