The driver of a Renault Espace, a young man from Tielrode, drove a little after 7 am and just past the car park in Kruibeke in the direction of Antwerp when a warning light began to burn. Almost immediately afterwards he noticed that the engine gave up the ghost. He could see the car but still be safe on the side.
“I stepped out and I saw all that grey smoke from beneath the bonnet”, the testimony of the driver, who was on his way to work. “When I was under the car looked, I saw that there is a fluid leak, I think oil. A few seconds later shot the car on fire and then very quickly went. Put yourself out there was not more. I could only a few personal belongings, including my mobile phone out of the car grabber with which I, the emergency services could call. After a few minutes stood in the car is already completely on fire. I could only helplessly watch.” The driver was of no help. “There is no other driver stopped. She sat behind the steering wheel to film or take photos while they prepared for the langsreden.”
