Rüdenhausen (dpa / lby) - A truck has tipped over onto the oncoming lane on Autobahn 3 in Lower Franconia, triggering a long complete closure. As the police announced on Thursday, the semi-trailer truck swayed on Wednesday near Rüdenhausen (Kitzingen district) in the construction site area and fell over. The load - around 20 tons of empty crates - was spread across the entire roadway. Two cars were therefore no longer able to avoid and were damaged when driving over the objects.
The 23-year-old truck driver was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after the accident. According to the police, the damage was around 270,000 euros. The highway was closed for more than 14 hours in both directions while salvage and clean-up work was carried out.
