Fatal accident on Kanonenstraße

A fatal accident occured in the Kanonenstraße on Sunday, 20th April, 2014.

A 40-year-old-motorcyclist was travelling from the Sandplacken towards Oberursel, when he applied the brakes before the road took a turn to the right.

He ended up on the wrong side of the road, where he was hit by an oncoming vehicle travelling in the opposite direction, before being hit by a further vehicle which was also travelling up the hill.

Despite resuscitation attempts, the motorcyclist died at the scene of the accident.  Police estimate the damage to the vehicles involved to total around €24,000.
