A20: Eleven ice accidents in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in two and a half hours

When it was very slippery, eleven accidents occurred on the A20 in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania within just two and a half hours – most of them ended lightly!

Between the state border with Schleswig-Holstein and the Neukloster junction (Nordwestmecklenburg district), the drivers kept skidding their cars on the slippery road, the police said. That is why there were a total of 11 weather-related accidents between 6.45 and 9.15 p.m. – in both directions.

The result: the BAB 20 had to be closed several times, sometimes fully, for the necessary rescue and clean-up work.

In one case, a driver overturned his car several times between Grevesm├╝hlen and Bobitz (both in the Nordwestmecklenburg district) after losing control of the car. His passenger was seriously injured and was taken to hospital – he suffered a thigh fracture.

Road users were slightly injured in three cases.
