Instead of helping his accident victim, a motorist in Köstendorf (Salzburg) fled on Sunday, leaving a 15-year-old girl seriously injured on the side of the road. The police are now hoping for more information.
Wolfgang Wagner is shocked. The mayor of Köstendorf (ÖVP) only heard from the “Krone” on Monday that an accident had occurred in his municipality on Sunday.
Around 12:45 p.m., a 15-year-old in Köstendorf had to dodge a car on her moped that was coming towards her in the middle of the road. During the attempt, the girl’s vehicle slipped on the loose surface, fell and was seriously injured.
In addition to massive skin abrasions, the minor also suffered a broken shoulder joint. Instead of helping the victim, the unknown man fled, leaving the 15-year-old behind.
Commemoration of 19-year-olds who died in an accident
Also in June, a hit-and-run accident in Mattsee ended fatally. A 19-year-old was hit by a car and then run over. “The drivers are just becoming more and more irresponsible,” Wagner complains. The local boss hopes that the police can track down the driver who was hit as soon as possible.
But the police are still in the dark. “Unfortunately, neither the girl nor any of the witnesses can provide any information about the vehicle or its license plate,” said police spokeswoman Valerie Bachler. Now the police are hoping for more witnesses: “If anyone has noticed anything, please contact the office in Neumarkt.”
