Black ice causes various road accidents

8th December 2014, Comments 0 comments

Black ice created hazardous road conditions across the country, but especially in Limburg province in eastern Belgium.

A cyclist died in Sint-Truiden after sustaining head injuries.

In Zonhoven, a driver got injured when his car went off the road.

Last night had clear skies, which triggered ground frost after a long day of fresh rain.

This created slippery roads as a thin coating of ice was formed on the road surface.

Various accidents were reported in Limburg.

A woman crashed on her bicycle, sustaining fatal injuries when her head hit a curb stone. She died on the spot.

The hazardous conditions came despite efforts to send out gritter trucks during the night.
