Not an attack, but a tragic accident according to the police in Franconia: A man drives his car into a group of people after a funeral.
After a funeral in Treuchtlingen in Middle Franconia, four mourners were seriously injured in an accident. After the memorial service, an 87-year-old wanted to drive away with his car, other mourners went on foot, a police spokesman reported Tuesday afternoon. The old man first hit two women with his car and then drove over two men who got under the car.
One of the two suffered life-threatening injuries at the age of 59, the second man (31), like the two women, got away with serious, but not life-threatening injuries. The driver was not physically injured. “We believe it was a tragic accident,” said the police spokesman. The exact cause of the accident has yet to be determined.
