EA 49-year-old man drove his car into a group of revelers standing on the street in Rüsselsheim. According to initial findings, two people were critically injured in the accident on Saturday night, a police spokesman said early on Saturday morning. Two other people were slightly injured, and several others were also in shock. More detailed information on the injured could not be given, also because some of those affected would have gone directly to the hospital. The police are looking for witnesses.
According to the police, people celebrated the curb (church fair) on Friday evening. A larger group was in the Bauschheim district outside of a restaurant, with some people also standing on the road. The driver probably didn’t see the group or saw it too late, said the police spokesman. He assumes an accident. An expert was consulted.
