The driver was with his vehicle on the A3, approx. Two kilometers after the haidt-sud rest area, in the direction of nurnberg, on the right lane with approx. 100 kilometers per hour on the road when he noticed a technical defect. Immediately he steered his car to the right and stopped on the hard shoulder. No sooner had he stopped than the engine compartment started to burn.
2000 euro damage
The F stadtschwarzach arrived with 14 firefighters under the leadership of the district fire chief and had quickly extinguished the fire. The officers of the VPI wurzburg-biebelried had to close the motorway in the direction of nurnberg during the fire-fighting work for approx. 15 minutes block. Because of the low volume of traffic, there was no major traffic jam.
After the recovery of the burned out vehicle by a towing service it was determined that also the road surface on approx. Two square meters were damaged. The geiselwind freeway maintenance facility was ordered to be repaired. The total damage of the fire is given with about 2000 euros.
