Driver's life in the balance after horror Mamer crash

Two cars were involved in a serious incident between Mamer and Kehlen at around 4.30pm, leaving two people with grave injuries.

According to Friday's police report, a car travelling from Kehlen swerved into the wrong lane after the driver lost control of the vehicle. As the driver attempted to regain control, the car struck the barrier at the side of the road, bouncing back into oncoming traffic and causing a full-frontal collision with a car coming from the direction of Mamer.

The force of the impact sent the second car into a nearby field and caused the engine block to detach from the vehicle.

Both drivers had to be extricated from the wreckage of their cars by police, emergency services, and passersby. The driver of the first car was seriously hurt, while the second is said to have suffered life-threatening injuries.

The public prosecutor's office dispatched the judicial police to the scene to collect evidence and confiscate the vehicles. The road was closed until 8.30pm to allow clean-up and forensics access to the site.
