Fatality on Langstrasse this morning / 'Amokfahrer'

It seems that after some fights a man drove his car into the Lambada Bar, Corner Langstrasse/Dienerstrasse. The Bar is totally wrecked, at least one dead and some casualties reported.

Re: Mad Drive Langstrasse this morning

That's terrible, hope the other victims pull through. I also wish the VBZ had some kind of news ticker you can subscribe to so I don't end up at work half an hour late because Langstrasse is closed and the alternative route runs into trouble too...

Not today surely. That would be way too early for The Local.

I'd expect a thread on in next week some time.

And I feel very sorry for the family of the person who was killed and the ones who were injured. That doesn't mean I cannot chuckle about UTH's comment. Sadly enough, people are killed in accidents every day.

But the whole situation isn't as clear as communicated by the police in the beginning. Let the police do their work and judge on the outcome.

Re: Fatality on Langstrasse this morning / 'Amokfahrer'

maybe it is time to tighten car licensing laws or ban them altogether?

Re: Fatality on Langstrasse this morning / 'Amokfahrer'

if the police would ''STOP GIVEING FINE'S OUT and do the job right then I'm almost sure they would get the job done.by stopping these drugs dealers and thos guys who kerb drive looking for gals in those place.& givein a stupid 40fr/60fr bill out .. but by all means it dont make matters better.. Swiss is ''ONLY'' intrested in makeing money , but for those gal who walk the Langstr and for sure they pay taxe as well have NO SUPPORT FROM THE POLICE..!.THATS WHY THINGS GOES WRONG!¨.... by the time the police get to them it always too ''LATE''.. I wonder what those kerb driver's tells the wife back home... /LIES I suppose.. /working late..!lol..¨¨!

Re: Fatality on Langstrasse this morning / 'Amokfahrer'

The article says that the driver (allegedly) owns a "club". Yet he drives a Mondeo . Something doesn't add up here, and the usual excuses as in "oh he was high, he didn't know what he was doing" from his fellow... er... entrepreneurs is a bit disgusting.

I believe the Lambada club was where the doorman was shot a year or two ago. Maybe this was not an accident after all ...

He's the manager, not the owner, but yeah, apparently it's the one right after the railway underbridge when coming from Limmatplatz, on the right side. The car seems to be a Chrysler 200. Well, doesn't really matter anyway.
