A twelve-year-old boy died in tragic circumstances while riding his bicycle in Saint-Germain-en-Laye.
The drama occurred shortly before 2:30 p.m. this Thursday, on the central road that crosses the national forest.
Suck by the blast effect of the truck
One adult and two children cycle on this straight line limited to 70 km / h.
A top truck, which rolls in the same direction of traffic, arrives at their height and begins to overtake them.
Overtaking then causes a blast effect, destabilizing the young cyclist who loses his balance and falls from his two-wheeler.
Unable to avoid him, the heavy weight rolled over him.
The child died instantly.
The emergency services could not do anything for him.
“It's a horrible drama, reacts the mayor (DVD) of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, Arnaud Péricard.
I am the father of a twelve year old child, I can only imagine the pain for the relatives… It is difficult to explain what happened.
It is a road that is not particularly accident-prone in an area 15 km from the city center where few people live.
It is very quiet, there is very little flow of cars.
On the spot, the police arrested the driver of the truck.
The blood alcohol and drug tests came back negative.
An investigation is opened to determine the circumstances of the accident.
In the meantime, the 59-year-old man has been taken into police custody and the vehicle placed under seal.
A woman knocked down while reversing

The victim, multiple trauma, presents in particular a fracture at the level of the wrist and the femur.
