On A9 – Accident caused a six kilometer traffic jam


A 41-year-old motorist skidded on the A9 motorway near Ubelbach (Graz-Environs) on Wednesday afternoon and collided with a concrete crash barrier. Two people were slightly injured. The result was a traffic jam about six kilometers long.

At about 4.40 pm, the 41-year-old driver from the Schwaz/Tirol district was driving on the Pyhrnautobahn (A9) towards Graz. Due to the rain, he probably skidded shortly after the Gleinalm tunnel and crashed into a concrete barrier. A paramedic who happened to pass by and was not on duty at the time provided first aid until the Red Cross arrived in Ubelbach.

Alcohol test was negative
The 41-year-old and his passenger (22) suffered minor injuries and were taken to UKH Graz. An alcohol test with the steering wheel was negative. The car was a total loss.

The vehicle had to be towed. The A9 was completely closed in the vicinity of the accident site until about 6 p.m. A diversion has been set up via the S6 or the S35. There was a traffic jam of about six kilometers. Troops from the fire brigades of Übelbach and Asfinag were also deployed for the clean-up work.
