The circumstances of the accident, which occurred this Thursday, October 22, shortly before 8 a.m., on the A31, remain to be determined. According to the first elements, it would involve five cars and a truck which circulated in the direction Metz-Thionville.
It is at the level of the Hauconcourt cross that the collision took place.
Two men, aged 28 and 39, were slightly injured and will be taken care of by the emergency services to be transported to hospital for a check-up.
Seven people were in the damaged vehicles.
Traffic completely reopened at 9:30 a.m.
The left lane was completely neutralized and traffic was only carried out in the right lane. This did not fail to generate a strong slowdown of nearly 7 km. The left lane is now completely cleaned and reopened to traffic since 9:30 am. The slowdown is therefore gradually being absorbed. But we must still be patient.
On the spot, the CRS of the motorway detachment of Moulins-lès-Metz made the usual findings with a view to their investigation.
