The police are working with a ten-member investigation team to solve the horror crash of the ghost driver in offenburg. Preliminary evidence suggests that the 20-year-old was intentionally driving in the wrong direction and may have wanted to kill himself, police said on monday. But the man did not leave a suicide note. Officers will question friends and family about possible motives and life circumstances. Police expect lengthy investigation. Five people and the ghost driver were killed in the accident on a freeway.
"There is a history. And this one we have to follow up now", the head of the offenburg police, reinhard renter, told the dpa news agency on monday. There is no suicide note. "He did not make it that easy for us." Investigators are also looking into the possibility that it could have been a test drive or driving under the influence of drugs. Renter expects that a final report will not be available until next year. "This year will be no more."
There were no problems with traffic flow or a construction site at the freeway onramp, renter said. "There are no unusual circumstances that could have confused the driver and led him into the wrong lane." It must be assumed that the 20-year-old was deliberately heading in the wrong direction.
