“The accident happened around 9 am,” said spokesman Peter Bruyninckx of the Flemish Traffic Center. “Two trucks and a passenger car were involved, but the circumstances are still being investigated. In any case, there was heavy fog at the time of the accident. It will take a long time to deal with the accident. All traffic in the direction of Ghent has to stop. Leave the motorway via the Beervelde exit and follow diversion route G to the R4 ramp Destelbergen. The traffic that is stuck between the Beervelde exit and the scene of the accident is controlled and diverted by the road police. ”
Long-distance traffic can make a detour from Antwerp to Ghent via the E34 and R4-East, from Antwerp to the coast via the E34 and from Hasselt to Ghent via Brussels.
