Having become uncontrollable, the car first continued on the side before coming to a stop several meters further on, on the roof!

Four people, two men and two women from Comines-France, were in the vehicle. “If we had been asked for an extrication, at the base, it was ultimately not necessary. Conscious, the two ladies were taken to the nearby CHM, ”said Lieutenant Michaux, who led the intervention for the firefighters. “An ambulance from Mouscron, another from the Fluvia zone and a SMUR from Mouscron intervened. We also dispatched an extrication pumper and a beacon vehicle to the site ”

Access to the Express route tunnel was temporarily closed, vehicles then being forced to exit towards rue Saint-Achaire, the time to allow the emergency services to intervene. A tow truck was also called in to evacuate the vehicle immobilized on the expressway.
