This Wednesday morning, around 10:30 am, a traffic accident occurred on the N3 in Thimister-Clermont not far from the Cavalier Fonck monument. A cyclist, driving towards Battice, was struck by a van.
It is still unclear what caused this accident. Unfortunately, the cyclist died of his injuries in hospital late in the afternoon. “I was warned around 4.30 p.m. by the police on Wednesday,” explains Lambert Demonceau, the mayor of Thimister-Clermont. He is a 61-year-old man from Woluwé Saint-Lambert. He was exploring the Pays de Herve region with his wife. And they were lodged in a lodge in the region. This is why the police wondered at length why this gentleman was out for a walk with us when he comes from the Brussels region. In fact, he wanted to go and discover the monument of Cavalier Fonck. As he did not die on the spot, the prosecution did not come. It was not until late afternoon that I was notified of the sad news. “
