As a result of the accident, there was a total of more than a kilometer of traffic jam. Towards Hasselt it was time to queue from the Antwerp Ring. Traffic had to leave the highway in Massenhoven and drive via a local detour towards the Herentals-West ramp. This naturally also caused a lot of traffic problems locally.

Towards Antwerp there was also a long traffic jam. The federal road police recorded at least 25 license plates of motorists who took photos or videos of the situation at the height of the accident. Those persons can expect a fine of 174 euros or a summons to the police court.
