Crime: Arrest after manhole cover throw

After two manhole covers were thrown off a motorway bridge, two 19- and 21-year-old men from the Hildesheim district were arrested. The suspicion of the accused based, among other things, on the car they used, said the Hildesheim public prosecutor. This is said to have been seen at the crime scene at the time of the crime and when the manhole cover was stolen. The men are to be brought before the magistrate. The investigations against a 50-year-old from Harsum, on the other hand, were discontinued.

During the attack in August 2022, one of the manhole covers hit a car driving on the A7 and smashed through the windshield. The 52-year-old driver was seriously injured, his 43-year-old passenger critically. The other cover, while not hitting any vehicle directly, damaged several who drove over it.
