Essen: teenagers fall 18 meters from the parking garage with a golf – dead!


Meal – On the top floor of the car park there is a large hole in the boundary fences, yellow markings on the asphalt show: A car fell down here – horror crash on Easter Sunday!

About 18 meters below lies the wreck of a green VW Golf on the driver’s side. The car probably touched a tree while falling, then crashed onto the sidewalk with full force. Because the two teenagers (19, 16) were doing drift exercises in the parking garage?

“Daredevil Driving Maneuvers”

A resident told BILD: “It happens again and again that the young people here clear the barriers to the side and then drift in the parking garage.”

Apparently also on Sunday evening. In any case, the driver lost control of the VW on the top deck at 7:20 p.m. Then the fateful fall down. A police spokesman: “We secure traces on the top parking deck. It looks as if there were daring driving maneuvers there that led to this serious accident.”

The fire brigade was on site with a large contingent and had to cut the two occupants out of the completely destroyed wreckage with heavy equipment.
