There is currently a long traffic jam on the A1 due to a blockage as a result of a truck accident. Two lanes remain closed until midnight.

Dortmund – Attention drivers: There is currently a long traffic jam on the A1 near Dortmund. The reason for this is a traffic accident on Wednesday evening (September 21) in which two 40-ton trucks collided. As traffic.nrw and the Dortmund police report, it is currently backing up around 15 kilometers between the Schwerte junction via the Westhovener Kreuz and the Hagen-Nord junction. Drivers in NRW have to be prepared for a loss of time of up to 60 minutes. Two lanes in the direction of Münster are currently closed there, probably until midnight.

Closing after a truck accident on the A1 – lanes in the direction of Münster are likely to be closed until midnight

  • What? Closure on the A1 after a truck accident on Wednesday evening (September 21). Two lanes of the A1 in the direction of Münster will be closed there until probably midnight.
  • Where? A1, near Dortmund/Schwerte, in the direction of Münster
  • When? Accident on Wednesday September 21 at around 18:16

In the accident, a 51-year-old driver of a 40-ton truck recognized a slow-moving truck in front on Wednesday at 6:16 p.m. too late. The driver from Velbert tried to dodge, but hit the truck (also a 40-ton truck). Heavy smoke formed in the driver’s cab of the transporter from Warsaw for an unknown reason. The flames, which were visible shortly afterwards, spread to the entire truck loaded with detergents, among other things, which burned out completely.

Traffic jam after closure on the A1 – two lanes closed, asphalt of the highway damaged

The police blocked the A1 in the direction of Münster and Cologne during the extinguishing and recovery work. In the direction of Cologne, the right lane was released at 7:40 p.m. and all three lanes from 11:20 p.m. Since the high temperatures caused by the fire damaged the asphalt, two lanes of the A1 towards Münster are expected to be closed until midnight. It was only at the beginning of September that an accident had already occurred on the A1.
