Austria: community service ordered for moped crash mother

An Austrian court has called for a woman to do 200 hours of community work after her two daughters died when a car slammed into the trailer they were being pulled in behind her electric moped

The woman had been accused of causing death by gross negligence because the children aged 1 and 4 weren’t wearing helmets and the trailer lacked rear lights when the accident happened Aug. 4 near Hausleiten, outside Vienna.

The case against the 39-year-old mother will be dropped if she performs the 200 hours of community service within six months.
