The accident has closed the autoroute in both directions at Reichenburg – the road is not expected to re-open until later today.

Fourteen people have been injured.

There have been a spate of road crashes following the arrival of winter conditions. Three young men died in Canton Aargau after their car slid off the road in Densbüren in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Police forces across Switzerland are warning drivers to make sure their vehicles are ready for winter and are urging drivers to take care.
