After accidents, traffic was backed up on motorways and diversions in the greater Dresden area on Thursday morning. There is currently a traffic jam on the A4 near Hohenstein-Ernstthal. According to police, a 31-year-old was driving too fast on the wintry road. He slipped into the central barrier and hit a truck. The driver was slightly injured.

Longer closure and traffic jam on A17

A tractor-trailer caused a traffic jam and the motorway closure on the A17. The driver drove into a barrier in front of the Altfranken tunnel near Dresden and then broke through the central barrier, the Dresden fire department said. The 53-year-old driver was trapped in his destroyed cabin, but was rescued with minor injuries. He was taken to a hospital. The truck had 25 tons of feed salt on board. According to the fire department, the cargo remained undamaged.

In Stollberg, a winter service vehicle skidded after the driver got out and crashed into a house wall. According to the police, damage amounting to 10,000 euros was caused. Near Langenbernsdorf in the Zwickau district, a truck slipped into oncoming traffic and hit an oncoming minibus twice. According to police, five people were taken to hospital with injuries.
