Senior loses control: the car overturns – remains on the side

Munich – Bad accident in Sendling! A man (76) suddenly got off the road in his Mercedes (B-Class) on Friday.

On Schäftlarnstrasse (near the entrance to the wholesale market hall) the driver ran over a traffic island, rolled over and stayed on the passenger side. A passing ambulance took over the first aid for the patient and requested further emergency services via the control center, informs the fire brigade.

The fire brigade deployed a so-called ladder lever and put the Mercedes lying on its side back on its wheels. During the process, an employee of the rescue service looked after the patient who was still sitting in the car.

Dramatic: With the help of a hydraulic rescue kit, a large side opening was created so that the patient could be freed from the vehicle as gently as possible. The casualty was handed over to the ambulance service and transported to a Munich clinic for further treatment.

For the duration of the rescue operation, there were significant traffic obstructions in the vicinity of the accident site. The fire brigade cannot quantify the amount of damage.

The police accident command has started investigations into the course of the accident. Stadtwerke München was also called to the site because a traffic light system was badly damaged by the accident.
