At 15:15 a 74-year-old cyclist from Rehetobel went on his way to Zweibrücken. For unknown reasons he fell and injured himself. The driver of a subsequent vehicle met the injured man on the road and warned the emergency services, as the cantonal police of Ausserrhoder announced on Tuesday.
The disconnected ambulance was quickly on the spot. During the rescue, a 47-year-old paramedic was caught by a car that drove past the scene of the accident. He got a hip injury.
