Car collided with U-Bahn

A 56-year-old from Bad Homburg was driving along the Hohemarkstraße in his Fiat Doblo towards the Hohemark on Wednesday, 12th March, 2014.  At around 1.15pm he went to turn left across the tracks of the U-Bahn near house number 106.

However he oversaw the U-Bahn that was travelling in the same direction.  The car and the U-Bahn collided, with the car being pushed along the track and squashed between the train and the railings.

The car is a write-off, the driver and his passenger were slightly hurt.  The total damage is put at around €20,000.  The U-Bahn was damaged but was able to be driven away under its own power once the track had been cleared.
