On Saturday evening, October 3, 2020, two young men, both 17 years old, drove an agricultural motor cart on Haldistrasse from Haldi in the direction of Schattdorf. At the same time, a 55-year-old man drove his car in the opposite direction. During the crossing maneuver the driver of the agricultural vehicle got his wheels over the edge of the road. As a result, the vehicle crashed around sixty meters in the steep forest terrain, where it overturned. The car finally came to a standstill in the rough terrain on the roof.
It is almost a miracle that the two young occupants of the vehicle were not injured in the crash. They could leave their vehicle independently. Your vehicle suffered a total loss of around CHF 20,000 in the crash.
The emergency services at the Uri Cantonal Hospital, a team from the Erstfeld Rega base, the Schattdorf fire brigade, a private towing company, a farmer with his tractor for vehicle recovery, the Environmental Protection Agency, an employee of the Uri chemical service and employees of the Uri cantonal police were on duty.
