The accident Tuesday, October 6 on the RD173 in the Hautes-Pyrénées. – Consortium of Bielsa-Aragnouet tunnel

The driver emerged unscathed from this spectacular accident …

We do not know by what miracle the truck has not plunged into the void. In any case the image of the exit route is impressive.  It was broadcast by the consortium that operates the Bielsa tunnel between Spain and the Hautes-Pyrénées.  It states that “no injuries were reported” in this dramatic accident that occurred on Tuesday morning at the French end of the tunnel on the winding Route Departmental 173.

Road cut Wednesday

More fear than harm so even if the event has caused the closure of the road for Wednesday morning so that there is the time as a crane removes the lorry, balancing precariously.

The operator took the opportunity to politely ask its users to respect the speed limit and adapt their conduct to the configuration of the road.
