Road traffic accident caused by driver failing to fit winter tyres

With heavy snow falling across much of central Switzerland on Sunday many gritting lorries were out to keep motorists moving. While there were a number of road traffic accidents in other central Swiss cantons, only one was reported in the canton of Zug, at a roundabout in Rotkreuz.

This incident occurred on Sunday evening as one driver lost control over his vehicle as he approached the Holzhäusern roundabout and failed to negotiate it. Fortunately, no other car was involved and, as mentioned, no-one was injured but much damage was caused.

The Zug police advise all motorists to ensure they have winter tyres fitted.
