The A58 from Tilburg to Breda was closed for a short time on Sunday afternoon after an accident at Gilze. A trauma helicopter was summoned. It is not clear what exactly happened, but around two o’clock the road between Tilburg-Centrum West and Bavel was released again.
“It’s all standing still”
Due to the closure of the road, a traffic jam of four kilometers was created around half past two between Tilburg-Centrum West and Tilburg-Reeshof. This resulted in a delay of more than half an hour.
“It has come to a complete stop,” said a motorist from the traffic jam. “People get out of their cars and are waiting.”
There was also a traffic jam on the road from Breda to Tilburg, because people slowed down to look at the scene of the accident.
