The articulated vehicle stopped on the emergency lane. The 45-year-old and her son were injured in the collision and had to be taken to hospital by the rescue team after receiving first aid.

The section of the highway between A8 and A9 was completely closed for a short time to record the accident. The car was no longer drivable and had to be towed away. The truck driver escaped without injury and was able to continue his journey.
