Due to a slippery road, there was an accident on the Autobahn 71 at the Erfurt-Bindersleben junction. A van skidded in the direction of Sangerhausen, rolled over several times and came to rest on the roof on Monday morning, the police said. The 40-year-old driver reportedly lost control of his vehicle due to inappropriate speed. He was taken to a hospital with serious injuries. The vehicle was towed and temporary closures were in place.
