Heavy snow brings traffic chaos in Finland

Heavy vehicles stuck in the snow and numerous accidents were reported this morning (Friday) on the motorway between Jyväskylä and Jämsä in central Finland.

A number of truck-trailers are also stuck on the Lahti highway at Jämsä.

According to Jukka Polkutie of the Central Finland Police, there is around 10cm of slush and snow on roads in the area preventing heavy vehicles from getting traction on inclines.

Several heavy vehicles are also reported stranded on route 24 between Jämsä and Kuhmoinen.
