A driver was seriously injured in a traffic accident in Westerwald on Tuesday afternoon. According to the police, the accident happened at an intersection of federal highway 8 near Weidenhahn. A 20-year-old woman did not give way to another driver who was traveling on the main road for reasons that were initially unclear. The 20-year-old drove into the intersection almost unbraked and collided with the other car. The other driver was injured so badly that she had to be taken to a hospital. Two small children were in the injured woman's car and were not injured. Both cars were no longer drivable after the accident.
