Zug: E-bike driver seriously injured in a grazing collision

On Saturday afternoon, on Artherstrasse in Zug, there was a grazing collision between two two-wheel handlebars. An e-bike driver was seriously injured in the process.

On Saturday (June 12, 2021) at around 12 noon, a 77-year-old e-bike driver was riding on the cycle path along Artherstrasse in Zug towards Oberwil when she was overtaken by a 44-year-old racing cyclist. For reasons that are still unknown, there was a grazing collision between the two two-wheelers, whereupon the e-bike driver fell to the ground. In this fall, she sustained life-threatening injuries and had to be flown to the hospital by rescue helicopter. The exact course of the accident is now being clarified by the Zug police. During the approximately 40-minute deployment of the rescue services, Artherstrasse was only accessible in one lane in the accident area. Employees from the Zug rescue service, the Zug police and Lions Air rescue services were on duty.
