Accident in Waldprechtsweier! (grid 48°51'40"N 8°19'43"E) In November 1982 a missile convoy (12 trucks and 3 nuc missiles) left Neu-Ulm in a night exercise. Moving on the K3549 at Waldprechtsweier, a driver from one of the missiletransporters lost control, rammed parked vehicles, houses and killed a civilian who drove by. 4 other trucks in the convoy were seriously damaged and in the same night the complete village was evacuated. After salvaging the damaged warhead and trucks the inhabitants were allowed back into their homes.
