The accident happened around 12:45 a.m. Saturday night. “The exact circumstances under which the accident happened are being investigated,” said commissioner Patrick De Smedt of the Border police zone. “A traffic expert came to the scene.” Initial findings show that there is no exaggerated speed, but that the driver misjudged a bend.

The 16-year-old driver was in a life-threatening condition. His condition improved on Sunday. “The danger to life has passed, the driver is stable,” said De Smedt. The three passengers were also injured in the accident and were taken to hospital for treatment.

The foursome are from the region. The driver will later be questioned about why he was driving his parents’ car as a minor and without a driver’s license. “Now priority is given to medical care,” says the public prosecutor.
