A 53-year-old pedestrian was hit by a car and seriously injured on the B9 in Bonn-Mehlem on Tuesday morning. The man had apparently crossed the street on red.

A 53-year-old man was taken to the University Hospital with serious injuries after an accident in Bonn-Mehlem on Tuesday morning. The man had been hit by a car on the B9 at around 7am.

According to police, the pedestrian wanted to cross the street at a traffic light near Drachenburgstraße when he was hit by the car of a 62-year-old man. Witnesses said the man had crossed at the traffic light on red.

After receiving first aid from an emergency doctor, the seriously injured man was taken to hospital in an ambulance. Doctors could not rule out the injuries being life-threatening. The emergency services at the accident scene in the morning said the man could not be interviewed.

The B9 was completely closed towards Remagen for around two hours for investigations and the accident report at the scene. Further investigations into the accident are ongoing.

There was another serious accident at the location at the end of September. A female pedestrian died after a collision between an emergency doctor’s vehicle and a taxi.
