A motorcycle accident occurred on Monday around 2 p.m. on the B999 in the Enzianhütte area (Berchtesgadener Land district). A 20-year-old was seriously injured.
A 20-year-old from Salzburg came off the road to the right shortly before 2 p.m. due to the inappropriate speed in a left turn and fell over an embankment. There he remained badly injured on the first bushes.
Rescue helicopter first flew to the wrong place
A witness sitting on a bench made an emergency call. However, since she was logged into the Austrian network, the requested emergency doctor helicopter was sent to the Enzianhütte on the Trattberg. Only after the recall was the helicopter sent to the correct accident site.
There, after emergency medical care, the casualty was flown to the accident hospital in Salzburg with the suspicion of a thigh fracture. There was total damage to the motorcycle of around 3500 euros. The road was completely closed while the 20-year-old was being cared for because the helicopter landed on the road. − each
