Major traffic jam yesterday after accident on Juliana Bridge

Accident1WILLEMSTAD - In the accident that took place yesterday after 13.00 hours on the Julianabrug there were five people wounded; one driver had to be taken to the hospital for medical treatment.

Because of the accident, involving three vehicles, the road from Punda to Otrobanda was closed for hours. According to a witness, a taxi driver wanted to change from the left to the right lane but hit the rear of the vehicle driving in front of him. As a result, the cars started to spin. An approaching dump truck was not able to stop in time.

In the taxi bus, there were eight tourists from a cruise ship that was docked in the harbor. One of them was also slightly injured but chose to return to the ship. Only at 6.15 pm, the bridge was open again because the truck could not be moved immediately.
