Because of the severe damage, the central guardrail was separated and protruded into the opposite lane, the A24 had to remain closed for around three hours for recovery and repair.

The estimated property damage is comparatively not so high because the caravan was "a considerable age," said the spokeswoman.

The 94-year-old was alone on the way to the federal capital.
