Devastating accident on the A99
Wrong driver kills four people
Late in the evening, a driver near Hohenbrunn makes a fatal mistake: he drives incorrectly onto the A99, a little later he collides with an oncoming vehicle. Any help comes too late for all inmates.
Four men were killed in an accident after a ghost drive on Autobahn 99 near Munich. Two of the victims were in a car with Gütersloh license plates, said a spokesman for the police headquarters in Upper Bavaria North in Ingolstadt. According to the police, the 34 and 43 year old men were driving in the right lane towards Salzburg. At the Hohenbrunn exit they suddenly met another car that was driving in the wrong direction. A 50-year-old passenger sat next to the driver. The vehicles crashed into each other head-on, all four men died.
Where the person who caused the accident came from and how old he was is unknown. It is also unclear how long he was driving in the wrong direction on the motorway before the accident. According to the police, there are no indications that he had consumed alcohol or drugs. The A99 is part of the motorway ring around Munich, which connects the A9 towards Nuremberg and the A8 towards Salzburg in the east.
In the vicinity of Erfurt a truck driver was able to prevent worse. There, too, a wrong-way driver drove onto the Autobahn 71. According to the police, the 30-year-old truck driver deliberately blocked the left lane when a car approached him from the wrong direction at the Erfurt-Bindersleben junction.
After the car had to stop, the truck driver held the 43-year-old ghost driver until the police arrived. An alcohol test showed a value of 1.84 per mille. According to the information, the man had to surrender his driver’s license immediately. He is now being investigated for endangering road traffic.
