The child injured in the traffic accident involving Winfried Kretschmann is fighting for his life. The Prime Minister expressed his condolences to those affected.
According to the police, an injured one-year-old girl is in danger of death after a collision of a car with a stationary follow-up vehicle of the Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg, Winfried Kretschmann (Greens). According to the police, the child was sitting in the backseat of a car on Monday evening that had slipped into the escort vehicle from Kretschmann’s column on the wet road on Autobahn 81 between Möckmühl and Boxberg.
In the afternoon, Kretschmann had expressed concern about the health status of the two injured: “My whole concern concerns the two seriously injured,” said the Baden-Württemberg government leader in Tuttlingen. “My thoughts are with you, of course.”
Kretschmann was unharmed
The 33-year-old driver of the other car was also seriously injured, according to the police, and a woman in the passenger seat sustained minor injuries. Before that, Kretschmann’s car had skidded, hit the crash barrier and then came to a stop in the hard shoulder.
The Prime Minister of Baden-Württemberg survived the road accident unharmed. According to a government spokesman, the head of government’s car skidded on a wet road, hit the crash barrier and then came to a stop in the emergency lane.
In the replacement car to Stuttgart
According to the information, two of the Prime Minister’s companions were also slightly injured. The escort vehicle and a police patrol car were behind the head of the crashed government car.
According to his spokesman, Winfried Kretschmann was then taken to Stuttgart with a replacement car. He had closed the day with various appointments in the Heilbronn region.
