Two drivers were injured in an accident on the Karl-Wüst Bridge in Heilbronn on Tuesday evening. They are 20 and 43 years old, their cars collided head-on, the police said. Both men were taken to the hospital and their cars were no longer drivable. The bridge was temporarily closed after the accident.
The 20-year-old was on the left lane when a 57-year-old truck driver wanted to change from the right lane to the left, it was said. According to initial investigations, the 20-year-old tried to avoid a collision with the truck and drove to the left into the opposite lane. There he first collided with the car of another 20-year-old, then he collided with the oncoming car of the 43-year-old.
