A stretch of the ring-road, Road 1, has been closed in South Iceland due to a rolled-over milk truck. The police closed off a stretch of the road east of the town Selfoss, between the farms Kjartansstaðir and the river Bitra. Traffic is being re-routed to roads 302 and 305.
Both lanes of the road is completely blocked by the truck. Police and first responders are bringing heavy equipment to the site to move the truck. According to the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service the driver was stuck inside the truck and had to be freed with the help of the fire department. He was rushed to the hospital by ambulance, but he is not believed to be critically injured.
Police expects that the road will remain closed for some time.
