On Saturday morning, around seven in the morning, a terrible accident occurred on the road between Biesme and Mettet. According to Colonel Marc Gilbert, the driver died instantly. This is Arthur M., 22, of Gerpinnes.
Despite the rapid arrival of the emergency services, the young man had no chance to escape because his car was leaning against a tree. Firefighters from the Val de Sambre rescue area intervened, as did SMUR and the police.
On social networks, news of Arthur's death quickly circulated because the young man was well known in the region.
