Two people were killed in a serious accident after a ghost ride on the A26 near Stade (Lower Saxony) on Saturday afternoon.
According to initial information, an 87-year-old woman was driving in the opposite direction onto Autobahn 26 around 2:30 PM. She crashed head-on into another vehicle between Stade-Ost and Dollern.
The elderly woman apparently died instantly, and the 48-year-old driver who had been in the other vehicle also died on the spot from his injuries.
The highway was completely closed in both directions.
Many eyewitnesses had to receive psychological care.
Further backgrounds are not yet known. The police are investigating.
