Crash caused €11,000 damage on New Year’s Day

A 52-year-old man from Frankfurt and a 28-year-old man from Bad Homburg were driving along the L3006 (Urseler Straße) towards Oberursel on 1st January, 2014, at around 2.35pm.

As the traffic lights on the junction to the A661 motorway turned from green to amber, both put on their brakes, but the 28-year-old who was in the car behind the 52-year-old realised that he had braked too late and swerved to avoid a collision.

In doing so, his Mercedes drove over a road sign and hit the pole which carries the traffic lights.

Although no-one was hurt and the car from Frankfurt was undamaged, around €11,000 of damage was caused.
