An accident between a De Lijn bus and a cyclist occurred this Wednesday, around 6:45 p.m., near the Place de l’Yser, in the city center of Brussels. The impact in the windshield of the bus (driver’s side) testifies to the violence of the shock for the two-wheeled victim. An ambulance and a SMUR were sent to the scene. At the time of writing these lines, the local police were still on site and had set up a security perimeter around the scene of the accident.
“This is a serious accident which took place at the crossroads formed by the boulevards of Dixmude and Anvers. The state of health of the victim is unknown to us at this stage. Traffic is therefore interrupted between boulevard de Dixmude and avenue du Port,” says Ilse Van de keere, spokesperson for the Brussels Capital / Ixelles police.
