The accident happened around a quarter to twelve. The driver of a heavy Mercedes out of the tunnel under the station Square was driving, noticed a short queue of cars for the traffic lights was waiting at the roundabout of the Driekoningenstraat too late. He rode in on another Mercedes due to the heavy blow against two other cars and was catapulted. Also a road sign had to be there to believe it. Fire, police, three ambulances and a MOSQUITO team rushed to the spot, but fortunately, it turned out none of the victims had serious.
The fire brigade had a lot of opkuiswerk. The road lay over a distance of about 50 meters, littered with wreckage, glass and oil. The police closed the roadway for a time in both directions and led the movement to. There was limited congestion in the vicinity of the station.
