It was around 7:50 p.m. when an accident with dramatic consequences took place on the N55, between the roundabout called “Eddy Merckx” freshly decorated for the Tour de France and the one that serves as the intersection between rue de Namur and the N55.
A priori, only two vehicles would be involved in this accident. A motorcycle and a mowing tractor. “We arrived at the Eddy Merckx roundabout when we saw the police placing studs to block traffic”, told us a witness who arrived on the spot shortly after the accident. “There was a tractor on the side and a motorcycle on the ground. We passed on the side, rue Saint-Pie, and we stopped out of curiosity. We then saw white sheets on the floor. »
According to our information, the biker died on the spot. An ambulance was dispatched to the scene. Alas, the emergency services could not do anything…
However, the exact circumstances of this accident have not been communicated to us. The prosecution went to the scene.
The editorial staff of La Nouvelle Gazette sends its condolences to the relatives of the victim.
