There was a fatal accident on stage 5 of the 1910 III. Prinz-Heinrich-Fahrt reliability run, when the cars ran in an area which now belongs to France, and this could very well be it. The #57 Adler of Brunnhuber/Fritz Abenstedt crashed, killing both, and injuring a number of spectators.
But I have no idea if the items in this lot. are related or not, so they may in fact confuse rather than offer any clues. Two of the images aren't even necessarily race-related, at all. I think they probably belong to the same photo session, but I've nothing to support that.
This it what the auction description says:
2 motifs from the race, one from a very bad accident, and 2 showing scenes along the race course (in the case of the accident, it would have been public roads somewhere in former Elsass aka Alsace). It stands to reason that there would have been a photographer at the Colmar Automobile Club's stands, where the accident occurred, whereas it seems far less likely that there would have been one out on the course somewhere, coincidentally present at the scene of another accident.Es handelt sich um 2 Aufnahmen, die das Rennen zeigen, eines nach einem schweren Unfall und zwei weitere, mit Motiven an der Rennstrecke

There's a good chance this is the one, unless someone can rule out from the wreck that it's an Adler.
