Following the fatal accident on Sunday afternoon in Koekelberg, municipal authorities will hold a meeting on Monday evening to discuss the location of the accident. The municipality has also called on residents to attend the meeting “en masse” to share their opinion on how to make the road safer and potentially prevent such accidents, reports Bruzz. The consultation starts at 7 pm in the town hall.
A 30-year-old woman from Brussels died in the accident on Avenue de Jette in Koekelberg. She left Parc Elisabeth in Koekelberg at around 11.30 a.m. and wanted to cross Avenue de Jette via the pedestrian crossing at Rue De Neck. Two vehicles stopped to let the woman cross, but a Volkswagen Polo drove past the stationary cars along the right side of the bicycle path and hit the woman head-on.
The driver had a provisional driving licence and was not under the influence of alcohol, according to reports.
On Monday evening a vigil for the deceased woman will also be held.
