Haßfurt (dpa / lby) - It could be weeks before the cause of a fatal accident on a school site in Haßfurt in Lower Franconia is clarified. "On average, something like this takes six to eight weeks," said a police spokesman on Wednesday. An expert from Dekra was still at the scene of the accident on Tuesday and is now preparing an opinion. "For example, it will say whether something was broken on the truck." So far, many questions have not been answered, such as whether the fatally injured girl could hear the truck. In many trucks, a beeping signal sounds when reversing, which is intended to prevent accidents with pedestrians and cyclists.
On Tuesday afternoon, the eleven-year-old was hit by the truck that had reversed onto the grounds of the high school. The girl died. The 48-year-old driver who was supposed to deliver drinks suffered a shock.
According to a spokeswoman on Wednesday, the school center, which includes a primary, middle and junior high school as well as a high school, wanted to set up a mourning room for the students. Several children witnessed the accident.
