On the A8 in the district of Traunstein, two drivers fought an illegal car race on Sunday evening and endangered several road users. The driver just managed to avoid the accident. Police are now looking for witnesses.

The two drivers drove through the highway in their cars “recklessly” and “against traffic laws,” police said in a statement. At 8:35 p.m., an illegal car race took place in the direction of Munich, about two kilometers before the Siegsdorf junction.

They forced other road users and themselves several times by turning on the lights and driving up close to clear the road. They also passed several cars on the right side illegally by squeezing them in the narrow gaps between the cars.

Drivers can only avoid accidents

During one of these extreme maneuvers, a road user was so endangered that he had to brake and almost run into the crash barrier to avoid an accident.

Police are looking for witnesses and clues

In order to arrest the two drivers, the Rosenheim traffic police are now asking for information. Witnesses who saw the incident and can provide information about the vehicles, especially license plate numbers, are asked to contact them phone number 08035/9068-0 to contact the police.

So far, the police only have information that the two cars are a white Mercedes AMG with black stripes and a Romanian license plate and a black BMW 5 series with a registration number from the Meissen district. Therefore, both cars had amazing rear spoilers. – Well
