On Sunday afternoon, police moved to Tórshov, following a report that a car had crashed into the facade of a building at Holz Gate 11.
– According to the traces found at the scene, the car deviated about 200 meters below the Vogts Gate before the journey ended at the facade, which led to it sustaining minor damage.
The car journey meant that it crossed the second ring and the Christian Michelsens gate.
– Fortunately, no one was injured, police wrote on X/Twitter at 17:32.
Police say shortly after that they were interviewing the car’s owner to find out what happened.
At 17.50, operations manager Sven Christian Lee said the car’s owner was a man in his 40s who lived in the area.
– He was actually looking for his car, so he was probably happy when we found it, but he was also a little distraught, he tells me.
After speaking to the man, he claimed the handbrake was on, but the car was in gear.
– When the patrol found the car, it was parked in the open area with the brakes on. It was simply a bad break. He has been advised to fix this as soon as possible.
The man was reported for breaching Section 3 of the Road Traffic Act, which means that “everyone must travel with caution and be alert and cautious, so that no danger or damage arises, and so that other traffic is not unnecessarily obstructed or disturbed.” .
– It’s an accident, but it’s very unfortunate that it happened.
