These two cars crashed after skidding on ice on Saturday when the temperature dropped, turning Luxembourg's roads into skating rinks.

Two cars travelling in opposite directions were badly damaged when they skidded on ice and collided on Saturday night.

The accident occurred between Heffingen and Fels late on Saturday night. One car, which was driven by a Belgian national, struck the other on the passenger side of the car.

The driver was taken to hospital with serious injuries. Two occupants were in the other car. They too suffered injuries.

Because of the freezing temperatures, two walkers had to be rescued from the Mullterthal region after they slipped on the icy rocks.
