Bautzen (dpa/sn) - A man wanted by the police on an arrest warrant was arrested in a car accident on Saturday. The 29-year-old lost the left front wheel of his car on Autobahn 4 shortly before the Bautzen Ost junction, the police said on Sunday. So he stopped on the hard shoulder. A following car drove over the wheel that was lost for an unknown reason. This caused damage of 500 euros to the car.
When the accident was recorded, the officials not only found that the person who caused the accident was wanted by the judiciary, but also that he did not have a driver's license, it said. A criminal case was therefore instituted against the man. The 29-year-old was taken to the prison in Bautzen.
