A Kenyan teenager was last week killed in an accident in Böblingen.

According to the police report, the 19 year old Kenyan was riding his bike without paying any attention to the traffic. The report goes further to say, the young man had no helmet on and was wearing headphones at the time of the collision.

The young man was riding his bike along the Humboldtstraße towards Zeppelinstraße on Saturday, August 22nd at around 7:20pm. At the junction turning into Zeppelinstraße, the cyclist rode into the street without confirming the traffic situation and he collided with an oncoming VW Golf.
