Because of an argument, a driver “complied” a friend out of her car on the A38 in Saxony-Anhalt. The 40-year-old was then on Saturday evening shortly after 9 p.m. on the hard shoulder of the Autobahn near Großkorbetha – without a cell phone. This was still in the car, as the Halle (Saale) police inspection announced on Sunday.

Several passing vehicle occupants had informed the police about the woman on the hard shoulder, said a police spokesman when asked. The 40-year-old didn’t have to wait more than ten minutes for her rescue. Police officers took the woman and took her to a train station. She had money for a train ticket with her, it was said.
