Accidents possible due to smoothness, two dead in Oud-Beijerland

Motorists and other road users suffered from the smoothness last night and this morning. There were accidents in several places.

Two people died in Oud-Beijerland this morning when their car got off the road and landed in the water. According to the police, the accident may have been caused by smoothness. The victims are a 25-year-old male and a 21-year-old female from Oud-Beijerland.

Also in Moergestel, near Tilburg, things went wrong. Thats where a car smashed over the head last night. Presumably the smoothness played a part in this, writes Omroep Brabant.

The havoc was considerable:

Last night, the KNMI warned road users again of road smoothness due to freezing of wet sections of roads. At the beginning of the afternoon, code yellow was revoked everywhere.

Also yesterday smooth

Yesterday morning, the smoothness also caused several accidents in the country. There were four accidents on the A1 in Het Gooi. One of the drivers slipped just before the Laren- Hilversum exit towards Eemnes on the back of a truck.
