Ribnitz-Damgarten (dpa/mv) – Two cars collided near Ribnitz-Damgarten (Vorpommern-Rügen district) on Friday afternoon when overtaking. The driver of the vehicle in front was then taken to a hospital with injuries, police said. He had previously wanted to overtake and apparently overlooked a vehicle next to him, which in turn was already in the middle of the overtaking process. According to the police, the damage was around 50,000 euros. It will be determined because of the suspicion of road traffic hazard. The police reiterated the importance of looking over the shoulder, without which vehicles in the blind spot could be overlooked.
