Munich (dpa / lby) - With a stolen car, three young men are said to have "drifted" in a Munich parking garage and then lost control. The vehicle broke through the metal parapet and got stuck with one wheel on the top deck about ten meters above the abyss, the police said on Monday. The men then fled.
Drifting is about letting the rear of the vehicle swerve in a controlled manner when cornering. As part of the search, an 18-year-old, a 19-year-old and a 20-year-old were provisionally arrested near the scene of the accident in the Laim district. It is not yet clear who was behind the wheel of the trio.
The investigation revealed that the car had been reported stolen. Parts that fell from the parking garage during Sunday's accident damaged two vehicles parked on the street. The three suspects were released again. They were charged with theft, property damage and trespassing.
