Langenselbold (Hesse) – Another serious accident in an illegal car race: On the A 45 in Hesse, a Porsche driver (50) fled under the truck and immediately caught fire.
The fan of sports cars from the Märkisch district in North Rhine-Westphalia was driving his Porsche 911 Turbo on the Autobahn from Hanau to Aschaffenburg around 10:15 pm on Wednesday (May 11, 2022).
Not only was the 580 hp car tank full, the driver was also full: the police later determined that he had a blood alcohol level of 1.45.
In this situation, unrestrained, he ran into a silver Golf IV between the intersection of Langenselbold-West and Langenselbold Dreieck, passing VW on the right.
In the excitement of speeding, about a mile before Langenselbolder Dreieck, he overlooked a semi-trailer truck on the right lane. Inspector General of Police Thomas Leipold: “Porsche crashed into the back of a trailer, twisted and stopped after a smooth 150-meter drive at the central checkpoint. The sports car caught fire immediately and burned down.”
The driver managed to clear himself from the wreckage and fall with serious burn injuries. He was taken to hospital in critical condition.
The driver (50) of the semitrailer also had to go to the hospital in shock. The Silver Golf driver did not care about the accident and disappeared with his car towards Aschaffenburg.
The road was completely closed until 3.45 a.m. for rescue and cleaning work and allowed an expert to conduct investigations without interruption. The left lane was still hard on Thursday – part of the asphalt melted by fire had not yet been repaired. Total damage: 130,000 euros.
Langenselbold Road Police are looking for witnesses to the illegal race, crash and information about the escaped Golf: 06183-91 15 50.
