A driver died in an accident on Autobahn 46 in the Sauerland. The 24-year-old was hit by a car between the Hagen and Neheim-Süd interchanges in the direction of Werl after leaving his vehicle after an accident, as the police announced on Sunday morning.
For a previously unexplained cause, the 24-year-old’s car apparently skidded, hit the central barrier and came to a stop in the middle of the lane. When the driver got out, he was hit by the approaching car of a 25-year-old from Wuppertal.
The 24-year-old died at the scene of the accident. A 37-year-old from Wuppertal, who was sitting in the 25-year-old’s car, suffered a shock and was taken to hospital for further treatment. The directional lane had to be completely closed during the accident record and rescue work.
