One dead, three injured

“The accident took place following a chase. There were four young men – born in 1993, 2000 and 2003 – aboard the vehicle. There was one death among the passengers, two seriously injured including the driver and one slightly injured. The Brussels public prosecutor’s office came down to the spot with an automobile expert. A forensic scientist has been appointed and a camera investigation is underway, ”says Sarah Durant, spokesperson for the Brussels public prosecutor’s office. “The pursued vehicle first hit the berm, then the wall of the Sainctelette exit tunnel, before turning around. The firefighters had to intervene to extricate the people who were still stuck in it, ”she explains. Finally, it should be noted that there is a link between this deadly chase and an act of intra-family violence, the initial reason for the intervention of the AMOW police zone.
