The accident left 7 dead including 5 young people near Chartres: an investigation opened for “homicides and involuntary injuries”

Tuesday around 6:30 p.m., a vehicle “with five people on board, left a curve on the opposite lane” and collided with a second vehicle “which was traveling in the opposite direction, normally, on its lane”, specified in a press release the public prosecutor, Frédéric Chevallier.

“It emerged from initial testimony that the Honda vehicle (the one with five people on board, editor’s note) was traveling at high speed,” added the magistrate.

“Immobilized on the roof”, the vehicle which had initially deviated from its route immediately caught fire. “Despite the quickly mobilized help, the (first) vehicle was completely burned as were the five bodies trapped inside,” according to the prosecutor.

In this car, there were five young people: a 17-year-old girl and four young boys aged 18 to 19, living in Eure-et-Loir.

The two passengers of the second vehicle, aged 85 and 80, died instantly, thrown “into the ditch”.

Two other people, who were traveling in a third vehicle also hit during the accident, were injured and transported to a hospital center near Chartres.

The open investigation into homicides and unintentional injuries was entrusted to the Lucé gendarmerie company and the Eure-et-Loir departmental road safety squadron.

Autopsies as well as samples must now be carried out in particular “to search for any narcotic product and detect the presence of alcohol in the bodies of the five occupants of the vehicle” at the origin of the accident.
