Traffic on the A67 has been severely disrupted twice since Tuesday.
On Tuesday afternoon, it was closed in the direction of Belgium. On that occasion, a truck tipped over near Veldhoven. This led to a queue of on-lookers on the highway in the opposite direction. Drivers travelling towards Antwerp were advised to take a detour via Breda.
Then, on Wednesday morning, a man died as a result of an accident on the same highway near Someren. The deceased was a truck driver. He collided with another truck. The accident resulted in an enormous traffic jam. The A67, direction Eindhoven, was closed but has since been re-opened for traffic.
The police have begun an investigation into this incident.
