A father died on Friday a few hours after being involved in a terrible road accident in Ardooie (East Flanders).
The father was on his way to Bruges with his partner and his young son when, shortly after leaving for Ardooie, his vehicle was hit by a Mercedes. The driver of the latter had lost control of his vehicle after being subjected to hydroplaning.
Following the shock, the father also changed course and his car plunged on the right of the road. The car rolled over several times and came to a stop ten meters below the road.
The teenager managed to get out of the vehicle himself. Like the driver’s partner, who was only slightly injured. The man behind the wheel was less fortunate. He had to be resuscitated and was rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, Laaste Nieuws informs us this Friday that he lost his life.
