(MSS) A driver was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries after he crashed into the rear of a truck on Wednesday morning.

The accident happened on the N1 between the exits to A1 Potaschbierg and the small roundabout in Grevenmacher, when the truck gave way to avoid oncoming traffic. However the driver of a car behind didn't manage to stop in time and crashed into the trailer.

It took rescue workers 20 minutes to free the man from the car wreckage and the road section was completely blocked during the operation, causing traffic jams and delays.

Grevenmacher police are now looking for witnesses and urge anyone present at the N1 around 6am on Wednesday morning to call 4997-7500 if they have any information.
