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 was not under the influence of alcohol but only had his provisional driving license.
“We will identify the car and determine who the driver was. Then we will rightly inform the director,” said Johan Berckmans, police chief of the Brussels West zone on seeing the action of the police car, according to reports.
