Munich – Two traffic accidents on Tuesday in which police cars were involved.
► In the first case, a patrol crew with a patrol car was on Fürstenrieder Strasse around 7 a.m. The police were on their way to a hold-up alarm and drove with the flashing lights and horns on. At the intersection with Agnes-Bernauer-Strasse, the driver of the patrol car felt his way into the intersection area when there was a red light.
This resulted in a collision with a BMW crossing from the right. At the time of the accident this was controlled by a 50-year-old woman from Munich. Nobody was injured in the traffic accident.
There was damage to property amounting to several thousand euros. Both vehicles were still ready to drive, so that the scene of the accident could be cleared quickly and there was no major traffic disruption.
The hold-up alarm was supervised by other patrols and then turned out to be a false alarm on site.
► Another traffic accident with an emergency vehicle occurred around 4.45 p.m. Because of a pilot assignment as part of a convoy, an officer of the motorcycle relay drove with special signals down Widenmayerstraße in the direction out of town.
At that time, a 60-year-old from the Rosenheim district wanted to turn left on Crusiusstraße into Widenmayerstraße. This led to a collision with the police motorcycle.
Due to an emergency stop that was immediately initiated by the officer, he was able to reduce the speed so that he could intercept the motorcycle and did not fall. The officer was still slightly injured and had to be taken to hospital for further treatment.
There was slight damage to the vehicles in each case, and the Munich traffic police recorded the two accidents.
