The stranded driver’s life was probably saved by his decision to follow safety advice. After calling for help, he left his car and was standing behind the crash barrier when the accident happened.

The air ambulance landed on the autoroute to take the injured to hospital.

The road was closed in the Geneva direction for about 45 minutes.
