A 26-year-old woman rammed a tractor-trailer while overtaking on Bundesstrasse 72 in Cloppenburg.

Her 31-year-old husband was killed in the accident.

The woman, who is seven months pregnant, drove with her husband on Thursday afternoon in a car with a trailer in the direction of Friesoythe, the police said.

At an initially two-lane point, the woman overtook another car.

When cutting in to the right, her trailer loaded with stones began to lurch and the car got into oncoming traffic, where it rammed the tractor-trailer of a 43-year-old.

Her husband was trapped in the car in the collision.

He passed out and stopped breathing.

Police forces recovered him from the vehicle, but he still died at the scene of the accident.

The woman came to the hospital by rescue helicopter.
