WIESBADEN – Great excitement in Hesse: While police clear a protest camp in the Dannenroder Forest, activists block the A3 near Idstein – resulting in a serious traffic accident with injuries.

A demonstration against the car as the dominant means of transport led to a serious traffic accident on the A3 freeway. In the morning, two environmental activists had rappelled down from a highway bridge between the Idstein and Bad Camberg junctions and unfurled banners. On it was written: “Streetcar, zero fare, bicycle lanes instead of cars”. The police closed the freeway in both directions and called in special forces to assist.

When they arrived, one of the protesters voluntarily climbed back onto the bridge. The second was taken by the SEK and the fire department. Meanwhile, more protesters had gathered on the bridge and had to be carried away by emergency forces.

No emergency lane formed

The result of the closure was a prolonged traffic jam. At the end of which a car driver could not brake in time and crashed into a truck. The emergency services on the scene succeeded in rescuing the car driver. He sustained serious injuries and was flown to hospital by rescue helicopter. Also the rescue forces had to fight their way through the traffic at first, because no rescue lane had been formed. “Even the special police squad was initially stuck in the traffic jam”, reports the Frankfurt General Newspaper..

Later, the activists expressed regret for the incident in a statement, saying, “It is terrible that this tragedy has occurred”. However, the blockers do not want to take responsibility for the accident for the time being. “We find it distasteful that within fifteen minutes of the accident, the police were already making accusations via Twitter, while rear-end collisions during highway traffic jams are otherwise accepted as sadly commonplace,” the release reads. “To go into these allegations today would not do justice to this horrific event.” They wanted to leave the relatives alone to deal with the shock of the accident, quoted the Frankfurter Neue Presse from the statement of the activists.
