On the A6 between Schönbühl and Münchenbuchsee there was an accident between a driver going the wrong way and a 33-year-old man from Bern.

In May 2022, a driver going the wrong way stepped on the gas on the A6. Between Schönbühl and Münchenbuchsee there was a collision with the vehicle of a 33-year-old man from Bern. The man drove to the side of the road after the accident in which a tire burst on his vehicle.

Without waiting for the police, he drove after a while. A fatal mistake that is now costing you money.

Because traffic rules say: In the event of an accident, everyone involved must stop – regardless of fault or not – and wait for the police to arrive. Otherwise, you are subject to prosecution.

The 33-year-old also knew that the police were already nearby. The reason: the wrong-way driver caused at least one other collision a few hundred meters away and the police were there, claiming “20 minutes” of the Bern Mittelland prosecutor’s criminal order.

colleague sent to the police

The 33-year-old man’s lawyer explains to the portal why he left. When the second collision occurred, your client’s passenger got out and went alone to the crash site. There was a disagreement between the passenger and the police.

“Amidst all the commotion, it somehow got lost that the passenger was coming from a car that was also involved in an accident,” says the lawyer. The passenger called the suspect from the second crash site and told him to get off the autobahn. “So the allegation arose that my client had secretly made himself out of the dust instead of making himself known.”

The Public Ministry does not accept this reasoning. The man from Bern should have contacted the police himself instead of sending his colleagues. The 33-year-old man was convicted of violating the Road Traffic Act. He has to pay a fine of 200 francs and 150 francs in fees. (man)
