In the early hours of May 14, 2011, Kevin Lotscher was involved in a traffic accident in the Swiss town of Sierre, and suffered life-threatening head injuries. Police have reported that Lotscher was walking on the side of the road around 4:30 a.m. when he was hit head-on by a drunk driver.[1] The driver of the car, a 19-year-old woman, tested positive for alcohol and was detained by police.[2] This would eventually end his professional hockey career.
