37-year-old man dies after tragic traffic accident

A 37-year-old man has been killed in a traffic accident on the Great Belt Bridge on Thursday night.

This is stated by duty officer Lars Denholt at the South Zealand and Lolland-Falster Police around midnight on Friday night.

For unknown reasons, a car derailed in a westerly direction towards Funen and ended up across the first lane and the emergency lane, says Lars Denholt.

– When the driver then gets out and walks around behind his vehicle, which is in the middle of the first lane, a car comes which does not see him, and hits him directly, says the chief of guards.

The man was subsequently pronounced dead.

According to TV2 Fyn, a helicopter was sent to the landing site on Sprogø to pick up the man.

– The driver of the other car has been sent for check-up at the hospital, but is immediately unharmed, says Lars Denholt further.

The accident meant that the Great Belt Bridge was completely closed for more than two hours in the direction of Funen.

At 00.30, car traffic in the direction was reopened.

Around 01 o’clock, Sund & Bælt informs on Twitter that there is no longer a queue on the bridge, just as according to the police it has been cleaned up.

The 37-year-old’s family has been notified, police said.

According to TV2 Fyn, the accident occurred at 21.38.
