We saw that the road was closed at the area of Sapci. Tens of trucks and cars were trapped in front of us with seven passenger buses behind us. Since the road is closed by Edremit and Havran, there is no passing. We do not know how to work to open the roads, but we have been stuck here for five hours. We expect urgent help from the authorities. ” said.
