Cyclist caused accident crossing road

A 52-year-old cyclist decided to cross the Nassauer Straße by pushing his bicycle last Saturday lunchtime (7th September, 2013).

Unfortunately, according to police he did not consider the traffic on the road, causing drivers to drive and swerve to avoid him.  This resulted in two cars colliding with each other.

The cyclist continued on his way regardless, however someone from one of the cars involved was able to catch up with him and keep him at the scene until the police arrived.

No-one was injured but the damage is estimated at around €3,800.
