Scary Accident

The Lorry Driver

Helicopter Taking Off

There was an accident in Tungelsta today. A truck overturned in an uphill climb at Manhem Hill on Södertäljevägen. Rescue services arrived to the scene finding the lorry driver stuck under the truck. Using air bags they managed to lift up the truck and remove the driver. They then lifted him onto a stretcher and carried him across the road to a field where a waiting helicopter took off for the Karolinska hospital in Stockholm. I live only a kilometre down the road and took my bike over to the scene of the accident. I mailed a few photos to the evening papers and Expressen bought and published one of my photos. The road was closed off for three hours. No news yet about the condition of the injured driver.
