Saint-Symphorien-d’Ancelles. A car hits a detached trailer on the motorway: one seriously injured

Spectacular accident this night from Sunday to Monday a little before 11 p.m.: on the A6 motorway, in the direction of Lyon – Chalon, near the town of Saint-Symphorien-d’Ancelles near Mâcon, a heavy goods vehicle, for a reason to be determined, lost its trailer while driving. A car coming from behind violently crashed into the trailer. The latter stabilized on the left lane, while the damaged car came to a stop on the emergency lane.

Traffic cut, 4 km traffic jam

The emergency services required a lengthy extrication of the driver of the car, the sole occupant. He was treated on site by the SMUR Mâcon team, while traffic on the motorway was completely closed in the south-north direction during the intervention. The Mâcon firefighters were placed under the command of Lieutenant Fabrice Rimet, group leader who commanded the operations.

At around 00:45, the victim, a 36-year-old man, was removed from his vehicle in critical condition and taken to the Mâcon hospital. Traffic was restored shortly after 1:00 on a single lane, at which time there was a 4 km traffic jam.

It was only this Monday morning that traffic was fully restored on all three lanes.
