Kortemark –
The occupant of a house in Werken bij Kortemark has just escaped a major accident. She had just left her bedroom when a heavy delivery truck pierced the wall. The havoc is huge.

The accident happened on Saturday morning just after 7 am at the intersection of Steenstraat with Vladslostraat in Kortemark. The 7.5-meter-long delivery van of a 29-year-old driver ran out of control after a collision, thundered over the intersection and pierced the façade of a house on the corner.

The impact was huge. The entire retaining wall of the bedroom was swept away and the havoc in the bedroom is great. Fragments flew around and a cupboard was catapulted away.

Fortunately, the resident had just got up before and was no longer in the bedroom. The van was completely destroyed by the accident and was stuck in the wall. A part had to be removed before the van could be towed. Then the fire brigade had to prop up the wall to avoid a danger of collapse.

No people were injured.
