Emergency services had to free a motorist from their car after they collided head-on with an oncoming vehicle in Audun-Le-Tiche.

According to police, the driver was travelling towards Esch-sur-Alzette at around noon when the incident occurred. He had just turned right into a side road and attempted to overtake another vehicle when he skidded.

The car struck another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction, hitting it with such an impact that the bonnet of the first car was almost completely destroyed. The driver was slightly injured. He had to be released from the wreckage by firefighters.
