Bonn (dpa / lnw) - A heavy container slipped off a truck trailer at the Bonn-Nord motorway junction and caused a blockage with long traffic jams. The driver drove from the A565 to the A555 through a long curve on Tuesday. The container slipped, hit the roadway and came to rest across two lanes. A police spokeswoman said no other vehicles were hit.
A large crane was supposed to lift the container loaded with granulate on Tuesday afternoon. The traffic in the Bonn-Nord motorway junction was backed up for several kilometers. The investigators assumed that the load was not properly secured.
