Hazardous goods truck with bitumen admixture at 95 degrees overturned on A5: Recovery took hours

The recovery of the vehicle and the cargo should take place early Wednesday morning.

Curious and sweet at the same time: the 40-ton truck was loaded with chocolate bars, which suddenly gave the term “calorie bomb” a completely new meaning.

The right lane was closed in the evening for the accident recording, in the evening rush hour traffic stagnated between the Bühl and Achern junctions.

There should be traffic obstructions here until the morning.

The amount of damage and why the accident occurred were initially unknown.
