At 5 a.m. Thursday morning, Drome firefighters were notified. Two heavy goods vehicles collided on the Lacra at Bourg-de Peage in the Grenoble Valence direction.
Accident occurred on the A49 motorway near Bourg-de-Peage just before the Chatuzange-le-Goubet interchange. Investigations are being conducted by the gendarmes from the Departmental Road Safety Squadron of Isere 38.
Both drivers sustained injuries and one female driver was struck by debris from the accident. All three were urgently taken to Romans-sur Isere hospital.
The emergency response continues. Due to debris on tracks and guardrails, traffic was stopped in both directions. The restoration of the roadway in the Valence-Grenoble direction may take between 1 and 2 hours, according to firefighters. The Grenoble–Valence direction may take slightly longer because one of the heavyweights containing flour that has been tipped on the track will need to be cleared.
The second heavyweight was a hazardous weight, but it was not thrown out.
Around 25 firefighters are on site and 6 vehicles are mobilized. On-site law enforcement officers are available.
