Sunday morning in the peaceful village of Kradolf. Local resident Michal Stüssy (60) is walking along the main street with her dog Ayona (3). As she walks past, she observes a pensioner (90) crossing the pedestrian crossing. Suddenly a red fiat shoots up – and thunders into the man! “First his head flew through the windscreen and then his whole body was caught frontally,” says Stüssy, describing the awful accident.
Passenger terrorises helpers
At the wheel was an Eritrean (23) – with a a blood alcohol level of 1.6 per thousand. While the driver, in a state of shock, tried to help the badly injured victim, his passenger loses it at the scene of the accident. Although the pensioner was still breathing, he tried to resuscitate him! “I told him he should stop that and try to bring him to a position at the side – but he didn’t want to!” Eventually other helpers showed the troublemaker the way.
