Bad Kreuznach, Wilhelmstraße / Europaplatz (ots) - On the morning of September 17.09.2020, 08 around 43:49 a.m., a 81-year-old bus driver intends to turn left into Europaplatz with his vehicle in Bad Kreuznach from Wilhelmstraße via the bus turning lane provided for this purpose. In doing so, the bus driver is likely to overlook the car that is given priority due to the green traffic light system and is traveling from the Ochsenbrücke towards the Kreuzkirche. There is a violent collision between the two vehicles, with several airbags being triggered in the car. Fortunately, the initial report that a person was trapped in the vehicle was not confirmed on site. As far as we know, the XNUMX-year-old driver who is alone in the car will be moderately injured and the bus driver slightly injured in the collision. Both are taken to surrounding hospitals by the ambulance service. Two other passengers on the bus are unharmed. For the duration of the accident recording, the recovery of the car that is no longer ready to drive and the subsequent lane cleaning, the police will take measures to regulate the traffic. Major traffic disruptions can be avoided by brief detours.
