Hellisheiði closed for 80 minutes

Southwestbound traffic had to be closed for about 80 minutes following a truck driving off the road near Kambar, above Hveragerði. The closure came at the request of the police.

A Twitter posting from the Icelandic Road Administration from around half past two today states that the heath was closed only westbound.

The Icelandic Road Administration tells mbl.is that the road has been opened and that the road has been closed for 80 minutes in total due to the incident. The bypass road through Þrengsli was closed during operations.

The vehicle was relatively easily recovered on the road but no information was available on its damage or if anybody got injured.
