Drunk driver caused car shunt in the Weißkirchener Straße

A 44-year-old woman from Oberursel was driving along the Weißkirchener Straße in her Opel Agila last Thursday (28th March, 2013) when she hit a BMW 316 which had been parked at the side of the road.  The force of the collision shunted the BMW onto a Renault Clio that was parked in front of it.  The total damage is estimated at €10,000.

Police believe that the accident was caused by the excessive alcohol that the driver had consumed.  A blood sample was taken and her Bulgarian driving license was confiscated.  She now faces a fine and the loss of her license for a considerable time.  She will probably also be required to take a psychological examination before it is returned to her.

Weißkirchener Straße partially closed next week

Traffic lights will be in place to control the traffic and a diversion via the Oberurseler Straße will be signposted for vehicles coming from Steinbach.

Accident in Weißkirchen – Lorry Driver sought

On Friday evening last week (25th January, 2013), a 22 year old man from Frankfurt was driving his BMW along the Kurmainzer Strasse travelling from Steinbach when he drove past the turning into the Weißkirchener Strasse which he had intended to take.

He continued a short distance along the road before turning across the road and into an entrance.  As he drove back onto the road he failed to notice a lorry with a trailer that was travelling towards Steinbach.

Although the BMW collided with the trailer, it appears that the lorry driver did not notice and continued on his journey.  All that is known about the lorry is that the trailer was white.

The damage to the BMW is estimated at around 7,000EUR.  No-one was injured.
