Mourning after accidental death – Lenker (17) only had a driver’s license for three months

Mayor Michael Lackner says audibly shocked: “My sympathy is with the relatives.” The community of St. Martin near Lofer is shocked after the tragic traffic accident on Friday evening in the neighboring community of Lofer: A local, only 17 years old, is an active member of the fire brigade and in community life anchored, has lost his life. The novice driver, who only had his L17 test driver’s license since the end of March, was driving with three friends (15 and 16) in a car at around 8.30 p.m. on the B178 in the direction of Unken. He lost control on a winding stretch of road near the Hallenstein district. The car left the road before a left-hand bend, rolled over several times before the car came to a standstill between several trees just above the Saalach.
