On Saturday evening shortly after 9.30 p.m. a motorbike driver drove on Neuenkirchstrasse from the Lohrenkreuzung towards Emmenbrücke LU, the Lucerne police said. At the right turn, the 29-year-old got into the opposite lane. At the same time, a delivery truck driver with a trailer was driving towards Neuenkirch.
The motorcyclist swerved to the left to avoid a collision with the oncoming vehicle combination. He came off the street and then crashed into the metal support of an advertising board.
29-year-old dies at the scene of the accident
The motorcycle came to a stop after about 45 meters. The man suffered such serious injuries that he died at the scene of the accident.
Neuenkirchstrasse was closed for around four and a half hours during the investigation and the rescue work. The traffic was rerouted locally by the fire brigade. The Emmen public prosecutor is conducting the investigation. (szm)
