BRUSSELS — Three people were killed in a traffic accident on the Antwerp ring road on Thursday.

The accident took place at about 2.45pm on the Ghent-bound lanes at Borgerhout.

Two trucks and a passenger car collided with each other, but the exact cause of the accident is not yet clear.

Emergency authorities responded en masse to the accident and the Ghent-bound lanes were sealed off leading to traffic delays.

Traffic jam was also reported on the Netherlands-bound lanes as drivers slowed to look at the accident site.

Motorists were urged to avoid the ring road and travel via the Liefkenshoek Tunnel. Tolls were removed on that section of road due to the traffic problems.

Meanwhile, traffic delays were reported elsewhere on the Antwerp ring road on Thursday as lane-narrowing objects were removed at the Kennedy Tunnel, which has reopened following resurfacing works.
