Malta’s motorists started the week in gridlock traffic on Monday morning after a traffic accident took place at around 3.30am on Regional Road, Santa Venera, leaving a 22-year-old with serious injury when he crashed into a wall.

Parts of Regional Road have been closed to clear the wreckage and assess the scene, with a police and magisterial inquiry being launched. As of 9.40am, Regional Road was fully opened with hopes that the stand-still traffic will clear shortly.
