Wiedergeltingen (dpa/lby) РWith a snow plow against swollen barley malt: The Autobahnmeisterei cleared away barley malt with a snow plow on the A 96 near Wiedergeltingen (Unterallgäu district). The police announced on Friday that a truck had previously lost the barley malt while driving.

The 28-year-old driver then stopped on the hard shoulder. However, he could not prevent passing cars from spreading the grain more than 300 meters. The rain started, the barley malt swelled. That’s why the highway maintenance department used a snow plow instead of a normal sweeper. The police assume that the driver did not close the door of the truck properly. He now faces a fine.
