Poggendorf (dpa / mv) - One week after the fatal accident with a high-quality electric car near Poggendorf (Western Pomerania-Rügen), the exact cause is still unclear.

As a police spokeswoman announced on Tuesday in Stralsund, the necessary expert opinion was not yet available.

There were initially no indications that third parties were involved in the accident.

Last week, the car ran off to the left on a straight lane on Bundesstraße 194 between Poggendorf and Loitz, hit a tree and went up in flames.

The property damage was given at around 85,000 euros.

The remains of a person were discovered in the completely burned-out car.

According to the police, forensic doctors are working to clarify the exact identity via a DNA analysis.

According to the investigation, the car belonged to a businessman from Schwerin who was also active in Western Pomerania.

Because of the intense heat that is generated when the batteries of electric cars burn, first aiders could not put out the fire with fire extinguishers.
