A test on the driver of the car revealed moderate levels of alcohol. The 62-year-old was taken to the LKH Judenburg and then to the LKH Graz. The driver will be reported to the Leoben public prosecutor’s office for negligent homicide, the police said.
The 50-year-old scooter driver from the Upper Styrian district of Murtal fell around 11:40 p.m. In this area, the B77 is an open road without artificial lighting.
