Man killed after trying to take selfie on motorway
The accident occurred on a busy motorway in Germany. Dean Steele, 22, was struck by a car while attempting to take a selfie on the crash barrier. He was travelling with his two friends to the German town of Gudow to watch Bundesliga 2 side St Pauli. His two friends were not injured but were treated for shock. The driver was not fined. The crash is an example of a driver who failed to pay attention and was liable to drive into the cyclist.
