The collisions occurred after exit 12 (the first in the direction of L’Isle-Jourdain from Pujaudran) after a first motorist lost control of his vehicle in difficult weather conditions (rain and sleet).
32 people involved
About forty firefighters (13 vehicles in use) were mobilized after the alarm. The Smur d’Auch, the cross-departmental direction of Südweststraßen (Dirso) and the mayor of L’Isle-Jourdain also went to the scene of the accident.
In the end, more fear than harm: the multiple collisions left only eight minor injuries, which were evacuated to the Auch hospital center and the Toulouse University Hospital (Purpan).
