According to the police, the senior was on his pedelec on Tuesday afternoon at around 5 p.m. on Düsseldorfer Strasse, where, according to witness statements, he was driving between the two rails embedded in the lane.

When the 91-year-old wanted to turn right onto the cycle path at a red light there, the rear wheel of the electric bike suddenly slipped away on the rain-soaked rails. The man fell and sustained serious injuries.

“He was taken care of by first responders and then taken to a hospital by ambulance for further medical treatment,” said a police spokesman in conclusion.
