At around 2.40 p.m., a 44-year-old car driver was driving on the TS 5 district road from Bergen in the direction of Siegdorf.
Since the pedelec driver ignored the “give way” sign, the 44-year-old's car collided with an electric bicycle.
The 55-year-old was so seriously injured in the collision that he succumbed to his injuries at the scene of the accident.
The car driver suffered "minor abrasions from flying pieces of glass," as the police report said.
An expert should clarify the exact course of the accident.
There was a total write-off on the vehicle and the pedelec.
The district road was temporarily closed due to the accident record by the fire brigade.
