The driver was driving his vehicle from Urnäsch on Schwägalpstrasse at 2.40 p.m. and wanted to turn left at the pass in the direction of Schwägalp, as the Ausserrhoden cantonal police announced on Friday.
During this turning manoeuvre, he misjudged the distance to the oncoming motorcycle. In the collision with the right-of-way motorcycle, its driver and companion suffered unspecified injuries. Schwägalpstrasse had to be closed for around two hours after the accident. (SDA)
