Two accidents whilst leaving parking spaces

Two accidents that took place in Oberursel on Friday, 17th May, 2013 happened when cars were being driven out of parking spaces.

The first happened in the Holzweg car park, where the driver who was leaving a space frontwards oversaw a car that was passing by.  The car had to be towed out and the total damage is estimated at around €2,150.

Later on in the day, another car was being backed out of a space in the Kumeliusstraße, when it hit a grey Mercedes Benz parked at the side of the ride.  The driver who had been backing out left the scene of the accident without taking care of the damage, but the number plate of his car was noted by a witness who passed the information on to police.  The driver, whose car was not damaged, was later found by police.  The damage to the Mercedes is estimated at around €1,000.

Learner driver went the wrong way

He realised his mistake when he saw cars coming towards him and steered the car to the right.

Unfortunately in doing so he hit the railings between the road and the U-Bahn tracks, causing €750 of damage.  The car had to be towed away.

Accident in the Stadthalle car park

Police in Oberursel are looking for the driver of BMW 1 series that may have caused damage to another car in the underground car park of the Stadthalle on Thursday, 2nd May, 2013 between 2.45pm and 3.30pm.

A Mercedes parked on level one was damaged on the left-hand side, and police believe this was caused by another car parking or leaving the space next to it.  They say that the driver left the scene of the accident, but on searching the car park they found the BMW parked on level two and believe it was involved in the accident.  They are now trying to trace the owner.

Car damaged – note left – driver absconded

A Porsche Carrera 911 was damaged whilst it was parked at the Taunus Information Centre on Tuesday, 2nd April, 2013, some time between 11am and 1.30pm.  The damage is to the front left wing (fender) and is estimated to be around €1,000.

Police believe that the damage was caused by another car parking or leaving next to the Porsche.  The driver who caused the accident left a note with their telephone number, but as this does not comply with the obligations that they have according to law § 34 StVO this means that officially they absconded from the scene of an accident and police have started an investigation.  Had the driver called the police and left the note, then this would not have been necessary.

Anyone who saw the accident take place is asked to call the police station in Oberursel on 06171 62400.

Car collided with traffic lights – driver fled

In the early hours of Friday morning (22nd March, 2013), a Daimler Chrysler car driving by a 25-year-old woman hit a set of traffic lights whilst making a left turn off the Frankfurter Landstraße.

The damage is estimated at €10,000.

He continued on his journey without dealing with the situation and police believe that he was under the influence of alcohol at this time.  They were able to identify the car shortly afterwards and find out how was driving it.

They then found the driver at home in his flat and took him to the police station for a blood alcohol test.  His driving license was confiscated.  The damage to the cars is estimated at €5,200 but no-one was hurt.
