A serious traffic accident occurred early on Saturday evening on the state road 2063 between Starnberg and Gauting in the so-called Würm curve. At around 5:25 p.m., a family was driving in their car in the direction of Gauting when the 44-year-old driver lost control of the vehicle in a right-hand bend and ended up in the oncoming lane. The car, which was occupied by a total of four people, first touched an oncoming minibus before there was a head-on collision with an oncoming car. Both cars were badly damaged.
While the family was able to get themselves out of the vehicle, the 40-year-old driver of the other car had to be extricated from the vehicle by fire and rescue services. A helicopter took the seriously injured man to the hospital. The 44-year-old who caused the accident and his 32-year-old passenger were also seriously injured. The nine and 18-year-old children suffered minor injuries. The family was taken to area hospitals for treatment.
The state road had to be completely closed until late in the evening for the rescue and clean-up work. According to the current state of investigation, in addition to the rain-soaked road and unsuitable speed, an oil film on the road was the cause of the accident. Anyone who can provide information and observations about the formation of the oil film at the accident site is asked to contact the Gauting police on 089/893133-0.
