A driver was lucky to escape with only light injuries on Tuesday afternoon after crashing into a tree just south of Luxembourg City.

The incident occurred at about 6:40pm on a C162 route between Alzingen and Hassel when a driver is reported to have lost of control of their car, straddled a ditch, and crashed with force into a tree by the roadside.

The driver only slightly hurt but the car was seriously damaged in the accident that required a recovery truck from Bettembourg to remove it and clear the site.

Details of how the accident occurred on what appears to be a straight section of road, are not known at this stage, but icy weather conditions on the notorious C162 route where many accidents have happened before, could well have played a part.
