One dead and two seriously injured in an accident near Planckendael Park in Mechelen

The accident happened a stone’s throw from the Planckendael animal park.

A car hit two pedestrians (a woman and a man) in circumstances that have yet to be determined. The woman did not survive while the man was taken to hospital with injuries. A dog was also killed in the crash. The driver of the car was also injured and taken to hospital.

The accident happened near the railway bridge, just before the entrance to the Planckendael animal park. The Chaussée de Louvain has been closed to traffic and will remain so for some time so that a traffic expert can make the usual observations. A diversion has been set up via the nearby E19 motorway.

A faintness ?

According to initial findings, the driver felt unwell and left the road before hitting the facade of a house. On its way, it mowed down the victims who were walking their dog on the side. He had not been drinking and was not driving under the influence of narcotics. However, his driving license was withdrawn for 15 days, which is standard procedure.
