The accident happened on Monday at 12.20 p.m. A man (37) drove his car on the Leestrasse from Wittenbach towards Bernhardzell. At the same time, a woman (66) was driving her car and a passenger (89) also on Leestrasse in the opposite direction.
The 37-year-old’s car then skidded while accelerating, presumably due to the damp road. His car turned left over the median. As a result, it collided sideways and head-on with the car of the oncoming 66-year-olds. The 89-year-old was slightly injured, as reported by the St.Gallen canton police. She was taken to the hospital. There was property damage of several thousand francs. The fire brigade was called in because of the leakage of liquid. The street had to be closed for over an hour.
