A truck driver in Germany was seriously injured after taking part in an unauthorised private test drive with an anti-terrorist blockade.

The 48-year-old, who has not been publicly named, hit the barrier - like those created following attacks in Nice and Berlin - in Fürstenhagen on April 22 and was flown to a nearby hospital in Göttingen.

The accident occurred during a private test performed by an Ulsar-area entrepreneur that wanted to test a self-developed blockade, which he called a Nizzasperre.

The truck can be seen driving at just over 30mph before smashing into the barrier in a video uploaded to YouTube on Thursday.

The test took place on an empty but public street and had not been authorised by police, according to HNA.

The public prosecutor's office in Göttingen has launched an investigation into the test, and whether it caused negligent bodily harm or caused dangerous interference with road traffic.

In terrorist attacks in Nice and Berlin in July and December of last year, respectively, attackers drove trucks into crowds of people, killing a total of 98.

After the attacks, anti-terrorist blockades were set up in Germany to prevent such attacks from occurring again.

An entrepreneur from Ulsar had wanted to create his own design after tests carried out by the MDR magazine Umshau showed that the concrete blocks haven’t provided sufficient protection.

In the magazine’s tests, a truck had been accelerated by a traction device and there was not a driver in the vehicle.

In the Ulsar-area company’s unauthorised test drive, the driver was sitting behind the steering wheel of the short-haul truck in a self-built cage.

He drove about 100 yards toward the barrier, and several firefighters had to pry the man out of the vehicle after it crashed.

He was released from hospital on Thursday and was taken to a rehabilitation clinic in Hessisch-Lichtenau.
