Vierkirchen -

A 63-year-old from Munich was driving his

Mercedes Vito

on

Tuesday around 10.30 a.m.

on Guttenbrunnstraße in Vierkirchen in the direction of Ganghofer Straße.

At the junction with Ganghofer Strasse, the man slipped his foot from the

brake pedal

onto the

gas pedal

.

Due to a serious

pre-existing illness

, he could no longer lift his leg and crashed straight into a yard gate, which was

thrown

against a

car

parked on the property

.

The

Mercedes

then broke through

the

wall of

the single

-family

home of a family of

four

and only came

to a stop

in the

kitchen

.

Thank goodness none of the family was home at this point.

Mercedes races into the wall of the house: the family is accommodated in a hotel - the house is in danger of collapsing

As the house owner told the local newspaper, the

family is

currently not allowed into the

building

.

"We have been assigned a

hotel room

for two days, after which we can stay with friends," said the mother of two.

Since the

house wall

is a load-bearing

wall

,

the Vierkirchen fire brigade and THW

had to be called in to rescue the

Mercedes

.

The Vierkirchen fire department was the first to be on site.

"We looked after the injured man until the rescue arrived," said Commander Manfred Huber.

Then his people would have

supported

the

family house

together with the THW

.

The Vierkirchen fire brigade was on site with three emergency vehicles and around 15 personnel, the THW with four vehicles.

Only after the

wall

by

supporting

the Vito could from a

towing

be salvaged.

A structural engineer is currently checking whether the

house in

danger of

collapsing is still habitable.

The Dachau police do not currently have any results.
