A director of a Dutch truck had the tail of the file a bit too late noticed and popped on the back of his vehicle in front of you. The trailer, loaded with bags of textile, tore through the blow entirely open. The cabin of the drivers truck was to scrap is reduced, but if a miracle came, the driver there are no injuries from it.
The emergency services were called to an accident with geknelde persons, but upon their arrival, had the driver already on its own power out of the vehicle know free. More still: the man was found unharmed. It is a small miracle that he without a scratch out of the total verhakkelde wreck came. Because there are no injuries, allowed the fire brigade and a bergingsfirma soon begin cleaning up the havoc. The three lanes of the motorway E17 were blocked but the traffic was so lucky to pass through the lateral path of the E17. Nevertheless, the accident for a significant file. About a quarter to 11 were the wrecks hoisted and was the road again released.
