Multiple collisions – dangerous chase on the Ringstrasse in Vienna

A 40-year-old attracted attention on Monday evening with dangerous overtaking maneuvers in the middle of Vienna’s Ringstrasse. A cyclist was seriously injured.

Sometimes the suspect even drove at too high speed on the tram lines to overtake people turning left. Shortly afterwards he lost control of the car, left the road and aimed at the pedestrian area in front of the Republic Monument.

Collision with a car
Fortunately, passersby reacted quickly and narrowly avoided the 40-year-old. A short time later he collided with a woman (50) driving a car. She was unharmed. The car itself was a total loss.

Try to escape on foot
But here too the 40-year-old continued his journey and caused another collision. This time with a 23-year-old cyclist. He was seriously injured. The suspect then fled on foot. However, police managed to arrest the 40-year-old.

I can’t remember anything
The alcohol test showed a value of 1.44 per mille. The driver’s license was provisionally confiscated on the spot. When questioned, he stated that he could not remember most of the incidents. He is currently staying in a penitentiary.

This is followed by charges of intentionally causing grievous bodily harm, serious damage to property and intentionally endangering the public. The injured cyclist was taken to hospital with suspected multiple fractures.
