Bad Rodach (dpa / lby) - A paper cup carelessly thrown out of the car window triggered a traffic accident in Upper Franconia.
A co-driver threw away his coffee mug on State Road 2205 near Bad Rodach (Coburg district), the police said on Monday.
As a result, an 18-year-old driving behind it was frightened on Sunday, dodged the cup and hit a delineator.
The police used the license plate to identify the driver and front passenger of the other car.
Both are now being investigated.
