A HUGE traffic accident in Martorell has caused the shutdown of the A2 in Barcelona on Friday, October 14.

A video released from @Transit on Twitter shows an accident on the A-2 at Martorell in the direction of Barcelona.

The information was shared by DGT alongside the caption: “The #A2 in #Barcelona is closed due to an accident in #Martorell at the entrance to Barcelona.”

The video appears to show a lorry laying on its side and the barrier separating traffic in the middle bent out of shape.

Another lorry appears to have smashed into the aforementioned barrier.

Transit wrote: “There is a queue of 4 km in the BCN direction and 3 in the Lleida direction for this #accident on the A-2 in Martorell

“In the BCN direction, detours are made via exit 585 towards AP-7.”

Users on Twitter commented on the incident.

“It seems very clear that there is a serious problem with trucks and with the Kamikaze attitudes of many truck drivers,” one person wrote.

Another person said: “It’s a shame about the trucks, you risk your life every day, something must be done by the government.”
