Narrative:
Ryanair flight FR9671, a Boeing 737-8AS, was forced to abandon the approach and perform a go around after a passenger car had breached into the taxiway/runway environment at Weeze Airport, Germany.

The driver of the car tested positive for alcohol and there were indications of a previous medical condition. He had crashed through the perimeter fence and entered the taxiway/runway environment. At that time the Ryanair flight was approaching runway 27. The aircraft abandoned the approach at a distance of 4,8 nm (9 km) from the runway threshold.
The flight crew decided to divert to Münster Airport.
