Pedestrian killed in car accident

Several car accidents were reported on Friday night due to snow and slippery roads. Many people were injured; a pedestrian was killed in a car accident in Bad Goisern (Upper Austria).

A 41-year-old man was run over by a car in the early morning of Saturday. According to the 59-year-old driver, the man stood in the middle of the main road at around 4.00 a.m.

The driver failed to see the pedestrian in time. The car hit the man who was thrown to the right edge of the road. He died at the scene.

Several car accidents were reported in the Upper Austrian region "Mühlviertel": Three people were injured in accidents in Zwettl/Rodl and between Freitstadt and Waldburg.

Four lorries collided just before 7.30 on the motorway A8 near Aistersheim. Due to the enormous impact, the lorries were wedged inside one another. The lorry drivers survived unharmed. The accident caused a 20 km long traffic jam, before the road was cleared three hours later.

The majority of the vehicles on the motorway were lorries. While cars were diverted onto Rieder Strasse in the direction of Grieskirchen, lorries could not take this road due to slippery roads.

When the road had been cleared it took a while for the vehicles to move. Many drivers had used the break for a having a nap and they had to be woken up by the police.
