A vehicle fire broke out on saturday, 28. July 2018, shortly after 17.00 o'clock on the highway 73 occurred. As reported by the erlangen traffic police, a 48-year-old man had bought a car in forchheim and wanted to drive it to his home in the upper palatinate. Unfortunately, the new owner of the car did not get far.
Technical defect probably the cause of vehicle fire
The car began to burn on the A 73 motorway before the erlangen-nord exit in the direction of suden. The man, who was uninjured, had to watch his new acquisition burn out completely. Reason for this may be a technical defect, according to traffic police. The fire departments of baiersdorf, bubenreuth and mohrendorf were on site. The freeway in the direction of nurnberg had to be closed several times to extricate the vehicle and for the subsequent recovery, so that a traffic jam formed.
The former owner and seller reported to the police that evening and said that he had refunded the money to the buyer. He had sold the vehicle with a clear conscience because he had had it checked and repaired in a workshop two days earlier.
