(ADW) Two people were injured in a violent head-on collision on Wednesday evening.

It was at about 9:40pm when a driver travelling on the road through the forest connecting Flaxweiler to Dreiborn, lost control on a right hand bend.

The car swerved into the left lane and directly into the path of an oncoming car. A collision was inevitable and the impact threw the first car off to the side off the road. The sole occupant of the car was injured and became trapped inside the vehicle. The driver had to be freed by rescue workers.

 The driver of the second car however suffered only slight injuries. Both were transported to hospital in Luxembourg City.

The Dreiborn to Flaxweiler road was completely closed to traffic for about 30 minutes while a clean-up operation took place to clear both badly damaged cars.

This is the second recent accident to happen on exactly the same stretch of road as a similar incident was reported on Sunday.
