Gelsenkirchen (dpa / lnw) - In an accident with a bus on Tuesday in Gelsenkirchen, five people were injured, one of them seriously. The bus had previously turned from the ring road into Hiberniastrasse and, for an initially unknown reason, drove across an adjacent green area, as the fire brigade announced in the evening. Then, according to the information, he crossed a pedestrian and bicycle path and damaged the control box of a traffic light, two street lamps and a tree.
According to the fire brigade, a traffic light system at the intersection failed as a result of the damaged switch box. Traffic obstructions are therefore to be expected in the crossing area in the next few days.
