ZA serious traffic accident took place on Wednesday morning on the Semmering motorway in the direction of Wiener Neustadt between Gloggnitz and Neunkirchen. It is not yet known why the driver crashed into a traffic safety trailer.

Due to the force of the impact, the trailer lay upside down in the second lane and the vehicle involved in the accident came to rest against the direction of travel in the first lane.

The driver was treated by the ambulance and then taken to the Wiener Neustadt State Hospital. The trailer and the car were removed from the S6 by the Gloggnitz city fire brigade. The road was cleared of accident parts and made ready for traffic again. Meanwhile, the S6 was completely blocked. As a result, traffic could be diverted past the accident scene in one lane. This resulted in a 5km backlog in early traffic.
