ZURICH (Reuters) - The Gotthard road tunnel under the Alps in Switzerland is closed after a truck and a passenger car collided, damaging the key transit route's infrastructure, the TCS automobile club said on Wednesday.

The Blick newspaper cited local police as saying two people were killed and many injured in the accident in the tunnel, a main north-south route for Europe.

Police were not immediately available to confirm the report.
