"Six people died in the trafikolyckan at the Masugnsbyn in the municipality of Kiruna. So many people die in an accident is extremely uncommon, " says Maria Force, trafiksäkerhetsexpert at the Dmv."
"– this road will need to be reviewed."
"the Accident occurred in the middle of the night in a curve on county road 395 when a loaded malmtransport were met by a minibus. What exactly happened is not clear but the minibus is reported to have come over in the wrong lane and vehicles of the british house of commons."
"Residents in the area, testifies that the curve is unfortunate. Only during the Friday evening had a crash occurred less than 100 metres from the scene of the accident."
"– this curve, you have to do something about it. It has been five–six cars spinning of the track on half a year, says an accommodation to the SVT Norrbotten."
"2018 was a dismal year for the accident on the Swedish roads when 325 people were killed in traffic. The number was almost 30 per cent more than in 2017. Although accidents with so many fatalities as in the case of accident in Masugnsbyn are extremely rare, so is the fatal accident hardly any good start in 2019, " says Mary Power, an expert on road safety at the Swedish transport administration."
"– in 2018 was very dark with an unusual amount of accidents with heavy traffic. The heavy traffic also increased by 2.5 per cent in the number of vehicles on the roads, " she says."
"the speed Limit on the olycksvägen is 90 kilometres an hour and the locals want it lowered to 60 kilometers per hour and to a bypass being built. Generally, the mittseparerar the Swedish transport administration roads where the speed limit is 80 or over."
"– we have done This on almost all roads. But on roads with low flow, and especially up in the north, allowing the high speeds for the probability of meeting someone is so small, " says Maria Force."
"She has just taken part of the Swedish transport administration measurements from 2017 on flödesnivåerna and considers that it would not have given priority to different of the current path according to those values."
"At the fatal accidents with the truck, it is rarely the driver of the heavy vehicle who causes the accident, according to Mary Force. The police is still examining how it happened and at the same time a long series of measures in the time from the Dmv."
"– For each fatal accident, we do an in-depth study of why it happened and what we can do for it not to happen again. Then takes place priorities on what we should invest in order to save as many people as possible."
"the Companies Kaunis Iron and Malmtransport the north, driving route, had an exemption to drive on the road because förbifarterna not been completed."
"– this road will need to be reviewed, this exemption may be reviewed. Then we'll see if it is possible to speed up work with förbifarterna, " says Maria Force."
