The son of Countess Stephanie von Pfuel has been dead for two years, and in the summer the driver who is said to have caused the fatal car accident will be tried. The 59-year-old appears as a joint plaintiff. A matter of course for them.

Stephanie Countess von Pfuel, 59, has not yet finished with the death of her beloved son Karl “Charly” Begusat, † 26. How could she?

March 27, 2021 will mark the second anniversary of his death. The then 26-year-old was hit by a car at night in Berlin as he tried to cross a street. He was in a coma for a week, fighting for his life. In vain. “Charly” died on March 27, 2019.

In the summer, the man who is said to have caused the fatal car accident will be tried. Stephanie Countess von Pfuel explains in an interview with “Bild” why she would like to attend the trial.

Negligent homicide charges

The allegation against the driver, who is said to have captured Karl “Charly” Begusat with his Mercedes, weighs heavily. The prosecution pleads for negligent homicide. He was traveling at significantly too high speed when the tragic accident occurred. Instead of the allowed 50 km / h, he should have had over 80 km / h on the speedometer, reports “Bild”. If convicted, the driver faces up to five years imprisonment.

Stephanie Countess von Pfuel herself would like to ensure that the driver is punished for the act that he is accused of. She appears in the process as a joint plaintiff. A matter of course for her, although she knows that going to court will not be easy. “I want to look my son’s dead car in the eye,” says the 59-year-old provocatively in an interview with “Bild”.

Despite everything, one thing is clear to her: even if there is a conviction, she will never be able to forget her “Charly”.

My son’s death must see justice. Then I can reasonably close with the matter. But the grief stays forever.
