Hit and run on the Hohemarkstraße

On Saturday, 13th October, 2012 at around 10.25am an 83 year old lady from Oberursel was crossing the Hohemarkstraße using the pedestrian crossing near the U-Bahn stop “Lahnstraße”.

Whilst doing so she was caught by a passing car and fell.  She was slightly hurt.  The car did not stop, but witnesses were able to give enough information to the police in order to trace it.  It turned out that the driver at the time of the accident was also an 83 year old lady from Oberursel.

Police believe that the car went through a red light and failed to see the person on the crossing, who had green.
