Bergisch Gladbach – Lamborghini flees from the police
Bergisch Gladbach (ots) –
On Monday afternoon (October 24th), shortly after 5:00 pm, police officers from the traffic service were in their company car on Handstrasse and were waiting for a red light.
They saw a Lamborghini on Paffrather Strasse coming from Schildgen, turning onto the B 506 towards Wipperfürth. The driver revved up his sports car loudly and a little later passed the car in the right hand bend.
The police tried to follow the car, which was very difficult. The sports car sped off at excessive speed and overtook several road users. At the B 506 / Reuterstraße intersection, the traffic lights were showing a red light, which the driver ignored and drove past the traffic jam and turned onto Reuterstraße.
Police officers were only able to find the sports car parked in a dead end street in Römerfeld a short time later thanks to witnesses. The driver, a 43-year-old from Bergisch Gladbach, was still in his car and was being checked by police. He could not produce a valid driver’s license. The vehicle was treated as a crime and taken to a safe location for a towing service.
The driver is now being investigated for driving without a license and illegal racing. The Rhein-Berg police traffic commission is now looking for other witnesses and victims who were in danger when the Lamborghini drove past. Please contact the police on 02202 205-0. (ct)
