A truck accident on a snow-covered road has triggered a full closure of Autobahn 8 in Upper Bavaria. A truck had started to sway early Thursday morning near Odelzhausen in the Dachau district, whereupon the truck trailer overturned. The driver was not injured in the accident, a police spokesman said.

The A8 was completely blocked around the accident site in the direction of Munich. The salvage work could take a few hours, it said in the morning. A diversion was set up, but drivers would also have to expect waiting times there due to the weather conditions, the spokesman said.
