The truck hit energy-intensive barriers and completely blocked the S8 expressway towards Warsaw near Wrocław. Earlier, on the same road near Piotrków Trybunalski, a truck and a passenger car hit the barriers, also partially blocking the “expressway”. Road conditions are still difficult.
A series of road accidents took place on Saturday morning on the S8 expressway. Due to difficult weather conditions and – most likely – not adjusting the speed to them.
Two events near Piotrków, one near Wrocław
The last incident occurred at the Łozina junction near Wrocław. After the truck hit the energy-intensive barriers, the S8 route towards Warsaw is blocked. Traffic officials said the disruption could last until noon.
Earlier, two similar collisions occurred on the S8 near Piotrków Trybunalski (Łódź Voivodeship). Around 4 o’clock the truck hit the barriers, completely blocking the road towards Warsaw. The disruption ended just before noon. 8.
In turn, before 7 am, at the height of Studzianki, the driver of a Renault passenger car, who had previously lost control of the vehicle, hit the barriers. One person was injured and was transported to the hospital.
On the S8 route – but also on other important communication routes – there are difficult conditions. The reason is the same everywhere – heavy snowfall. The roads are slippery, collisions occur in many places, traffic jams form in places.
