The accident occurred this Wednesday afternoon, around 4:30 p.m.: a resident returned home and parked in rue de la Douane, in Marcinelle. It seems that his handbrake is causing a problem and the driver leaves his car in gear… Problem: rue de la Douane has a slight slope at this point. And as the resident prepares to return to his house, he sees his car starting to drive on its own!
