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.

Back to school for the classes of ’53

For the children living in Oberursel in 1953 who here six years old, 15th April was the day the remember as starting primary school.

Children living here now may well ask “which one?”, but there only was one primary school – the “Volksschule Mitte”, now called the “Grundschule Mitte” in the Schulstraße, and this served all of the children living between the border with Bommersheim and the Hohemark.
