In a left-hand bend downhill, a young driver lost control of the vehicle and then collided with several trees. The car was completely destroyed on impact. The accident driver, a 19-year-old Swiss from the region and his 21-year-old passenger were rescued. According to Pfister, the passenger had to be flown to the hospital in a rescue helicopter. According to the cantonal police, the severity of the injuries cannot yet be described.
For the second passenger, who was in the back seat, all help came too late; he died at the scene of the accident. According to the newspaper “Blick”, it is a friend of the passenger who was visiting from Linz in Austria. According to a friend, the three young men only wanted to take a short jaunt to show the guest the area.
To rescue the totally damaged VW Golf, the out-of-town route between Villigen and Mandach had to be closed by the fire brigades. This measure could only be revoked at 00.45.
The public prosecutor’s office in Brugg-Zurzach has opened a criminal investigation. A blood and urine sample was taken from the handlebar. The results are not known.

The police temporarily took his pilot’s license from him on a trial basis.
