Car collided with traffic lights – driver fled

In the early hours of Friday morning (22nd March, 2013), a Daimler Chrysler car driving by a 25-year-old woman hit a set of traffic lights whilst making a left turn off the Frankfurter Landstraße.

Instead of stopping and dealing with the damage, the driver continued on her way, but was soon found by police.  It was then ascertained that she had been under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident and a blood sample was taken.  She had also been slightly injured in the accident.

The damage is estimated at €10,000.
