Younger driver totals car at level crossing
A young driver had a narrow escape when he tried to cross a level crossing in Laubbach in canton Sankt Gallen.
He hit the barrier and the car ended up in a ditch.
He then fled the scene.
While the police were clearing up the wreckage, the 18-year-old returned with a family member. The police took his license and carried out a blood test. He was found to be unsafe to drive.
It’s estimated he caused tens of thousands of francs of damage – and the car is a write-off.
