Around 7.30 p.m. on Friday evening, a 22-year-old driver was driving on Frauenfelderstrasse in the direction of Märstetten. According to the findings of the Thurgau canton police, he wanted to turn left to a petrol station and had to brake because of the oncoming traffic.
A subsequent driver (21) noticed this too late and crashed into the rear of braking cars. The 21-year-old was injured moderately in the collision and was trapped in her own car.
The Weinfelden base fire brigade had to free the woman from the wreck, as the Thurgau canton police wrote in a message. After the first aid by the rescue service, the injured person was flown to the hospital by Rega.
The cars suffered property damage of several thousand francs. During the recording of the accident, the road in the area of the accident site had to be closed for around two hours. The traffic was diverted. (noo)
