Illertissen (Bavaria) – On a country road in Swabia, a man suddenly lost consciousness behind the wheel, but drove two kilometers further before he crashed into a tree and died.
The 57-year-old was on the 2018 state road on Thursday evening when he passed out. At a roundabout, he left the road and drove through several meadows and corn fields, then collided with the tree.
A witness came to the helpless of the unconscious, but in vain. The driver died a short time later in the hospital. He had collapsed and passed out due to illness at the wheel, the police said on Friday.
