The second biker, aged 57, is seriously injured. “He was transported by the medical helicopter from Bra-sur-Lienne, in critical condition, to the University Hospital of Liège”, further explains the police.
The driver behind the wheel of the ghost car was not injured in the accident. But he would be very shocked. All the people involved in this accident are of German nationality.
