Driver who did not obey the ‘stop’ warning on Fatih Sultan Mehmet Bridge hit the police: 2 injured

At the FSM Bridge, the police team applied at the entrance of the Anatolian Side and warned 48 AGP 572 plate commercial vans that quickly entered the bridge to “stop”. The commercial panel van, whose driver’s identity could not be learned, continued rapidly and hit the police at the application point. Police officers Okan D. and Kadir M. were injured.

Upon notification, firefighters, police and medical teams were dispatched to the accident site. The injured policemen were taken to the hospital by ambulance after the first aid of the paramedics.


The vehicle, which continued on its way, was stopped by the police teams following it after hitting the 34 BEP 442 plated light commercial vehicle under the administration of Durmuş S., which was driving on the bridge. The driver was detained.

While the police teams created a security circle at the accident site, the traffic flow was controlled from a single lane in the transition from the Anatolian Side to the European Side.

The traffic density on the bridge returned to normal after the accident vehicles were removed with the help of a tow truck.
