The serious accident had occurred in Wildeshausen earlier today. According to initial police investigations, a 22-year-old driver had disregarded the right of way of another vehicle when turning. The man's vehicle collided with the car of a 37-year-old driver, whose vehicle was thrown by the impact of a collision into a group of five cyclists who were on the opposite lane. Two cyclists, men aged 47 and 61, were seriously injured in the accident. The two injured were followed by a rescue helicopter to a clinic, where the 47-year-old man died of his injuries shortly afterwards.
But it wasn't just the cyclists who were injured in the accident. The 37-year-old driver of the car and her 56-year-old passenger were also injured in the accident. Fortunately, their injuries turned out to be not serious after a medical examination. The 61-year-old cyclist, who is still struggling to survive in the hospital, was part of a group of racing cyclists like his colleague, who has since passed away. Hopefully the man's health will improve in the next few days
