Although the road was getting narrower and despite several warnings from passers-by, the driver continued his journey and only gave up his plan when his vehicle got stuck in a narrow passage between rocks and railings. The damaged car was recovered by the St. Gilgen fire department, and the German, who was not drunk, was reported for disobeying traffic signs.
In St. Gilgen, another operation took place on Thursday evening after a serious accident. On the B158 (Wolfgangsee-Strasse) in the direction of Fuschl, a 71-year-old woman from Salzburg got off the road with her car, crashed into a tree and ended up in a ditch. The driver was so badly injured that she had to be taken to the accident hospital in Salzburg by ambulance. The alcohol test was negative. The Red Cross and the Winkl and St. Gilgen fire brigades were deployed with a total of 30 men.
