This Saturday morning, shortly after 10 a.m., a single vehicle in question made a violent exit from the road on the National 40 between Givet and Beauraing, near Dion. According to our information, a car hit an electric pole and rolled over several times before coming to a standstill vertically in the ditch.
Quickly, the firefighters of the Dinaphi zone with the reinforcement of their French colleagues from Givet, Vireux and Monthermé took charge of the two occupants of the vehicle. The two men in their forties were injured and taken to Dinant University Hospital.
The French gendarmerie as well as the local police were also on the scene to draw up the report of use and especially to cut the circulation on the roadway. Local diversions have been put in place.
Ores and Enedis, the managers of the Belgian and French electricity network also intervened on site to repair the damage to several poles and to secure the high voltage cable network.
