Frankfurt/Main (dpa/lhe) - After a fatal traffic accident at a zebra crossing in Kriftel (Main-Taunus-Kreis), a 33-year-old driver has to answer for the second time this Wednesday (8.30 a.m.) before the Frankfurt Regional Court . In February 2018 he was sentenced to five and a half years in prison for bodily harm resulting in death - but the sentence was overturned by the Federal Court of Justice on appeal. The second trial is about a possible conviction for intentional manslaughter.
The crime happened in September 2015. The accused had driven towards a couple who were kissing on the zebra crossing. While the man was able to save himself, the 41-year-old woman first got on the hood and then under the car, which dragged her 400 meters. The jury has initially scheduled ten days of hearings until the beginning of June.
