Also, the driver of the truck was treated by the Sistema d’Emergències Mèdiques (SEM).
Two lanes cut
sources of Catalan Transit Service (SCT) have explained that two lanes they were cut off to traffic “due to the magnitude of the flames” and that they have remained closed all night, creating retentions.
This Tuesday morning reopened one of the lanes, and around 11:30 a.m. traffic has returned to normal.
