A driver was seriously injured in an accident on Autobahn 45 in the Main-Kinzig district. Witnesses reported that the 50-year-old is said to have had an illegal car race with another driver before the accident on Wednesday evening, the police said on Thursday morning. Between the Langenselbold-West junction and the Langenselbolder Dreieck, the man is said to have overtaken the other car from the right at high speed and overlooked a trailer truck.

The car then crashed into the rear of the semitrailer, turned and came to a stop at the central barrier. The 50-year-old’s car immediately caught fire and burned out completely. The man was able to get out of the vehicle on his own, but suffered serious burn injuries and was taken to a hospital in an ambulance. The 50-year-old driver of the semitrailer suffered a shock and was also taken to a clinic.

An initial investigation showed that he was also drunk. His driver’s license was secured. The driver of the car with which the 50-year-old is said to have delivered the race committed an escape from the driver. According to initial estimates, the damage to property amounts to around 130,000 euros. The roadway was closed for several hours after the accident. The police are looking for witnesses.
