A tanker truck driving along the S8 route near Wołomin hit a pedestrian and bicycle footbridge. She was carrying no cargo. Nobody was injured.
An unusual situation occurred on the S8 route in front of the Zielonka junction. – Around 19.30 there was a collision of a silo tanker (equipped with a hydraulic lift – ed.) with a pedestrian and bicycle footbridge, on the lane towards Bialystok – said the aspirant Jan Sobków from the fire brigade in Wołomin.
“She hit the bottom of the footbridge”
– Everything indicates that, for unknown reasons, the loading space of the tanker lifted and hit the bottom of the footbridge. This caused a part of the vehicle to detach and move to the roadside. The tanker stopped about 100 meters further from the footbridge – explained Sobków. “It was a flour silo tanker and it was empty,” he added.
The firefighter added that no one was injured in the incident. Hosts from the rescue and firefighting unit from Wołomin, the TSO in Zielonka, the TSO in Marki, as well as a police patrol and road service led the operation at the site.
