Car got on the wrong lane

The cause of the traffic accident is not yet known, according to the coburg traffic police department. On thursday around 7.25 o’clock came a 57-year-old with his BMW on the bundesstrabe 289 in the direction of A 73 into oncoming traffic and collided there with an oncoming fiat. As a result of the collision, the fiat skidded across the road and came to rest in the opposite lane to the direction of travel. The front left wheel of the BMW was torn off in the impact. The BMW touched the crash barrier several times and came to a stop about 500 meters after the collision on the right side of the road.

Several other road users had to avoid the driver who caused the accident in order to avoid being involved in the accident themselves. The damage to property amounted to an estimated 50,000 euros. The two people involved in the accident were only slightly injured and were taken to the lichtenfels hospital by the emergency medical services. The B 289 had to be completely closed for a time between grobheirath and the junction to the A 73 for the accident investigation.
