    A pedestrian was seriously injured on Thursday evening during an accident. This took place on the Boulevard du Jardin Botanique in Brussels. The details of the incident were indicated yesterday evening by the local Brussels-Ixelles police force. Last night the victim was in a critical condition.

    The exact circumstances of the accident are not yet known. Initial observations are that the pedestrian was crossing the Boulevard du Jardin Botanique when he was hit by a car, a Ford Fiesta, driving in the direction of the Porte de Schaerbeek tunnel.

    As alluded to above, the victim was taken to hospital in a critical condition. He has life-threatening injuries. The local Brussels-Ixelles police closed the road to traffic, to allow time for investigators to make the necessary findings.
