Motorway accidents after ice

Sub-zero temperatures in southern Sweden have meant ice on the roads - and on the major E4 motorway just south of Jönköping there have been several accidents.

Traffic was stopped during Friday night after a lorry drove off the road and turned over. The driver suffered minor injuries and the road was open by early morning.

Then a van overturned in the same icy area ice, meaning three people had to be taken to hospital, plus a car drove off the road, without serious injuries to the two occupants.

Jönköping is around 100 km east of Gothenburg.
