Car hit traffic lights on the Hohemarkstraße

Health problems were apparently the cause of an accident that took place on the Hohemarkstraße on Tuesday, 10th September, 2013 at 5pm.

The driver of a BMW X5 lost control of their vehicle on the section of the road near the Kupferhammerweg where the U-Bahn tracks cross it, hitting the pole of the traffic lights which caused the entire traffic light array to stop working.

The driver was slightly injured, police and railway staff controlled the traffic until a replacement set of lights could be installed.  The damage is estimated at around €20,000.

Drunk Driver caused accident on crossing

A collision at the crossing Feldbergstraße / Liebfrauenstraße caused €9,000 of damage late last Thursday (15th August, 2013).

A 19-year-old from Oberursel was driving a grey Skoda Fabia along the Liebfrauenstraße towards the Feldbergstraße.  At the crossing of the two roads the traffic lights were running in “nighttime” mode, ie. they were flashing amber.

The driver entered the crossing without making sure that the Feldbergstraße , where traffic has priority, was clear to enter.

In doing so she hit a grey Toyota Corolla being driven by a 47-year-old from Wehrheim.

Police suspected that the 19-year-old had been drinking alcohol and took a blood sample.

Hit and run on the Hohemarkstraße

On Saturday, 13th October, 2012 at around 10.25am an 83 year old lady from Oberursel was crossing the Hohemarkstraße using the pedestrian crossing near the U-Bahn stop “Lahnstraße”.

Whilst doing so she was caught by a passing car and fell.  She was slightly hurt.  The car did not stop, but witnesses were able to give enough information to the police in order to trace it.  It turned out that the driver at the time of the accident was also an 83 year old lady from Oberursel.

Police believe that the car went through a red light and failed to see the person on the crossing, who had green.
