A military tow truck collided with the rear of a military tanker in front of it. As a result of the collision, the civilian bus was also damaged. The S3 expressway towards Nowa Sól has been blocked. Detours have been designated.
The collision occurred on Tuesday around noon on the 199th kilometer of the S3 route. The vehicles were driving towards Nowa Sól and this road was blocked. – The incident took place at the height of Zielona Góra – said Arkadiusz Kaniak, the press officer of the City Headquarters of the State Fire Service in Zielona Góra.
The cistern is unsealed
According to the firefighter, a military tow truck ran into the rear of the military tanker that preceded it. As a result of the impact, the tank in which the fuel is transported is unsealed. The civilian bus was also damaged.
The firefighters pumped out some of the fuel from the tanker and blocked the leak. Several groups, including the chemical one, appeared on the spot. The gendarmerie was to decide what to do with the cars. – Two people were injured in the collision. They were treated by medics on the spot – said Kaniak.
A lot of difficulties
The police have set detours. – The tour was organized by the so-called old three. Drivers come to it through the Orlen station, then return to the S3 at the Niedoradz junction – explained Małgorzata Barska from the City Police Headquarters in Zielona Góra.
As Kaniak reported, the difficulties will continue for many more hours. The firefighters hope that they will be able to unblock the emergency lane sooner.
