A heavy goods vehicle accident occurred on the A20 during the night from Wednesday to Thursday, near Saint-Maurice-la-Souterraine, in Creuse. If, according to initial information, the truck driver was only slightly injured, the accident led to the closure of the highway north of Haute-Vienne. The A20 was able to reopen at 2 p.m. in the sector.

After an accident on Wednesday May 8 which led to significant disruptions on the A20 motorway, in the north of Haute-Vienne, near Razès, motorists faced cuts on the motorway this Thursday May 9 , in the morning.

During the night from Wednesday to Thursday, a refrigerated truck overturned on the emergency lane, around midnight, near Saint-Maurice-la-Souterraine, on the small Creuse portion of the highway.

Several closing hours

If the reasons for the accident remain to be determined, the consequences on traffic are clear. In Haute-Vienne, traffic on the motorway was cut until 2 p.m., in the Toulouse-Paris direction since the accident, between the La Croisière (Creuse) interchange and that of Arnac-la-Poste (Haute-Vienne).

A diversion was set up from interchange 23.b, national road 145, as well as by departmental roads 220 and 212. Motorists could then join the motorway at Arnac-la-Poste (interchange 22).
