HASSELT – Authorities in Hasselt are investigating a bizarre traffic accident that occurred in the city Friday morning.

At about 6.45 am a passenger car ran into a streetlight on the Kuringersteenweg in Hasselt. The emergencies services rushed to the scene but were unable to resuscitate the driver.

What was remarkable is that the man also had a gunshot wound in the stomach. The public prosecution department in Hasselt was alerted immediately. Federal police were also called in to assist with the investigation. The circumstances of the man's death are still unclear. Authorities are not ruling out that it may have been a suicide.
