Car hit traffic lights on the Hohemarkstraße

Health problems were apparently the cause of an accident that took place on the Hohemarkstraße on Tuesday, 10th September, 2013 at 5pm.

The driver of a BMW X5 lost control of their vehicle on the section of the road near the Kupferhammerweg where the U-Bahn tracks cross it, hitting the pole of the traffic lights which caused the entire traffic light array to stop working.

The driver was slightly injured, police and railway staff controlled the traffic until a replacement set of lights could be installed.  The damage is estimated at around €20,000.
