Schwerin (dpa / mv) - After a truck collided with a truck-mounted crane in Schwerin, the police are investigating the 43-year-old truck driver. There is a suspicion of negligent bodily harm, said a police spokeswoman on Tuesday. The truck driver is said to have given way to the truck-mounted crane on Monday in the Göhrener Tannen business park in the south of the city, which resulted in a collision. An expert is still to find out the exact cause.
In the collision, the 38-year-old crane driver was trapped in his driver's cab. He was taken out by comrades from the fire brigade and taken to a clinic by ambulance with life-threatening injuries. But he should be accessible.
