Police suspect that the car first hit a tree and then hit the sidewalk with full force. “It happens again and again that young people here push the barriers aside and then drive into the parking lot,” a local resident told the German newspaper. picture†
A police spokesman confirms the suspicion that reckless driving was the cause of the tragic accident. The Volkswagen Golf driver probably lost control of the car around 7:20 pm, after which it fell to the ground and crashed. We secure the tracks on the upper parking deck. It appears that there was some reckless driving that led to this serious accident.”
Emergency services rushed to the scene after the accident. The fire brigade struggled to get the two occupants, two boys aged 16 and 19, out of the completely devastated wreck. In the end, the car was completely cut out. The car stopped on the side of the driver in front of the parking lot. Rescuers found two young men who were unresponsive in the completely maimed car.”
The two passengers were resuscitated by emergency services and taken to hospital in critical condition. Both men eventually died of their injuries. Relatives and friends of the two victims gathered at the scene this evening. A woman collapsed at the sight of the wreckage and had to be taken to hospital as well.
