WATCH: Trailer collides with tree and causes closure of a major Żabbar road
An incident that involved a trailer at Triq il-Mina ta’ Hompesch at 4.30 pm this afternoon caused the closure of this main road between Fgura and Żabbar.
A video taken by a person who was on the spot and sent to TVM shows an upturned tree wedged between the cabin trailer and the container in tow. Further down the road torn and snapped uprooted tree branches can be seen. No injuries were reported.
Initially it could not be established whether the tree had fallen on the trailer or whether the trailer had collided with the tree but it later resulted that a large part of the tree had been wrenched off as can be seen from pictures sent to TVM (below).
In view of this situation a number of persons have appealed for the tree to be given the required attention because a substantial part of it had been torn off and there is a danger it could totally collapse onto the road.
