A fatal accident occurred on Monday morning in Hal, on the access ramp to the Brussels Ring Road, resulting in the death of a 58-year-old motorist.
The accident occurred at around 07:00 on the A8 towards the Brussels Ring Road when, for a yet unknown reason, a vehicle started zigzagging and hit a safety rail before crashing into a tree.
Witnesses then alerted the emergency services and tried to resuscitate the 58-year-old driver who unfortunately died at the scene.
