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 Grevesmühlen 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.
