Bochum – A man died in a serious accident in Bochum in the morning.
Witnesses dialed 911 at 5:03 a.m. A gray Audi station wagon had apparently crashed sideways at high speed under a trailer truck that was parked on the side of the road.
The driver had apparently been able to save himself from the wreck. A spokesman for the fire brigade: “The emergency doctor found the passenger dead. There was nothing more we could do.”
The suspected driver was taken to the hospital with suspected shock. Another man, who was probably slightly injured by broken glass, also had to go to the emergency room.
It was initially unclear how the accident could have happened. The accident site is on a straight road – near the Autobahn 43. Shortly before the accident site, a central island divides the road.
Police experts are now trying to clarify with the public prosecutor’s office whether the driver touched this crossing aid or whether another vehicle was involved.
