Truck driver reversed along Basel autoroute

Basel police have revoked the driving licence of a Lithuanian truck driver after he reversed along the autoroute.

The 43 year old missed the truck exit for the border – he then stopped and tried to reverse 500 meters back along the autoroute. But he couldn't control the trailer which got wedged in the crash barrier.

Police took away his licence on the spot and said it was pure luck there wasn't a serious accident.
