– There was a family of three from Akershus who were in the wrecked car. The driver, a man in his 60s, was not physically injured. His wife was taken to Ullevål hospital with serious injuries. Their daughter in her thirties died after the accident, the Sørøst Police District wrote on Twitter.
The next of kin have been notified and the police are still investigating the scene of the accident.
The car the three were in left the road at Garntangen in the municipality of Hole, near Sundvollen. The car drove off and stopped in a ditch, write Ringerike’s Diary. All emergency services and an ambulance helicopter quickly arrived at the scene of the accident.
The road was blocked in both directions and long queues quickly formed. At 7:00 p.m., the Veitrafikksentralen reported that it had reopened to traffic after the crash site. However, the road will be closed periodically in both directions throughout the evening.
– Our crime technicians will carry out investigations, and in addition the accident team of the Norwegian Road Administration will help us. This will cause the road to be closed. But we let traffic pass as long as we can, so we can solve long queuessays project manager Arne Koppergård at Ringerikes Blad.
Police said earlier Friday afternoon that the condition of one of the three injured was classified as critical. CPR was administered.
The reason for the descent is not yet known.
– We spoke to a few witnesses, but we did not clarify the reason for the raid. We determine that this is a serious accident, said Koppergård.
Police were notified of the crash shortly before 4:30 p.m.
