(JB) A lorry rolled over onto its side after driving too fast on a dangerous stretch of road.

The vehicle was being driven uphill at speed on the Heiderscheid road near the Bissen hotel at around 9.30am when the driver lost control.

According to police, the lorry veered off the road on a tight bend into the layby where it toppled onto its right side.

The driver had to be released by removing the windscreen. He was taken to hospital as a precaution.

The stretch of road, linking motorists to the Belgian border, is a hot spot for road traffic collisions.
