A careless mistake that could cost a life. Employed at the Saint-Druon private college in Carvin (Nord), a 58-year-old plastic arts teacher was accidentally knocked down by a cyclist in front of the building on Monday January 30, around 2 p.m.
The 50-year-old was knocked down by a bicycle as she crossed the lane in front of the Catholic college. In the shock, his head hit the pavement. Quickly taken care of by the firefighters, the victim was transported to the hospital center of Séclin. She was then redirected to the Salengro hospital in Lille due to the worsening of her state of health.
