Car crashes into several trees The car was traveling between Gabelbach and Gabelbachergreut (Zusmarshausen market, Augsburg district). The 74-year-old driver left the road in a right-hand bend for an unknown reason. "There the vehicle flew several meters through the air and crashed into several trees," says the police report. The impact ripped the car into pieces. The vehicle then came to rest on a steep embankment that was difficult to see. E-Call guides the emergency services to the scene of the accident The emergency services became aware of the accident via the emergency call system E-Call, which was installed in the car, a 1-series BMW.
