The two men, who caused the accident on Saturday in Heverlee (Leuven) killing four, were driving at high speed and failed to give right of way to an oncoming car.

Driving a station wagon the two men failed to yield right of way and ran at high speed into a small passenger car. A women and  three children were killed. The two men, from Romania, had traces of ecstasy in their blood. They are both in police custody.

The two men, both in their twenties, were questioned by the investigating magistrate today. According to Leuven police commissioner Marc Vranckx, the men were questioned to determine what exactly happened and who was driving.

However, there still seems to be considerable confusion as to the facts. Both men gave different accounts of the accident in their statements.

The neighborhood where the incident took place is in shock. The Romanian station wagon was reportedly driving way over the speed limit.

The victims are a mother and her 11 year old daughter, and 2 of her daughters friends- twin girls also of 11 years old.  They were driving home from horseback riding when the station wagon did not yield right of way and tore into the car at high speed.
