On Wednesday, January 25, 2023, around 2:30 am, the driver of a black Mercedes-Benz SUV was subject to a traffic stop. This evaded control by running away and was initially able to escape undetected. About 10 minutes later, a witness reported a black Mercedes-Benz SUV that had been involved in an accident. He drove over a concrete bollard in Stüdlestrasse, near the school. The driver got out and ran on foot. Around 3.40 am the same driver was driving a Renault Clio in Weil am Rhein. He should be re-examined. He again ran from the police to Stüdlestrasse, but this time he hit two concrete pillars at the same accident scene. After a short foot chase, the 36-year-old driver of the car was arrested at the time. Due to the suspicion of alcohol influence, a blood sample was taken from him at the hospital. The 36-year-old does not currently hold a driver’s license. The 36-year-old was also issued an arrest warrant from the public prosecutor’s office. He is now in a rehab facility. Both vehicles were inoperable and had to be towed. The extent of the damage is unknown here.
