Reports of accidents have also come from Skaraborg and Småland counties. Two cars crashed on a road just north of Skövde, bringing traffic to a standstill.

On Road 32 In Ingarp, near Eksjö in the same region, a car left the road. The driver sustained minor head injuries and was taken to Eksjö hospital.
