Düsseldorf (ots) –

Tuesday, October 26, 2021, 9:47 a.m.

A 23-year-old cyclist was injured so badly this morning in a collision with a 72-year-old Mercedes A-Class that she succumbed to her injuries on site.

According to the first investigations and witness statements, the 72-year-old turned from Kasernenstrasse onto Haroldstrasse in the direction of Kavalleriestrasse. At this point in time, there was a backlog from the direction of Schwanenmarkt on Haroldstrasse. The 72-year-old recognized this backlog too late and tried to prevent a collision with the car parked in front of her. In doing so, she avoided the bicycle protection lane to the right. Here she captured the 23-year-old on her bike. This was thrown onto the road and rolled over by the Mercedes of the 72-year-old. The 23-year-old, who is a Luxembourg citizen and lives in Düsseldorf, suffered such serious injuries that she died on the spot. Another car was damaged in the accident. The 72-year-old was uninjured. The traffic accident recording team of the Düsseldorf police secured the traces of the accident on site.

This report was sent on October 26, 2021, 10:16 a.m. by the Düsseldorf police.
