A spectacular accident occurred this Wednesday in Auvelais.
A spectacular accident occurred this Wednesday shortly around 6 p.m. on the N98 Fosses-Ligny, in Sambreville. A tractor carrying 40 tonnes of potatoes escaped the control of its driver and lay down on the road, near the bridge that spans the Sambre in Auvelais. The truck’s cab fell into the river ten meters below, while the trailer and its load blocked the roadway.
The road was closed in both directions during the rescue operation, and the waterways management also banned river traffic. The driver, a 19-year-old young man, is injured.
At 8.15 p.m., both the bridge and the Sambre were still inaccessible.
