She was with her two children in the car. The two children, ages 9 and 12, were also taken to the hospital. Their mother’s condition was critical at first, but has since stabilized again.
The heavy collision, involving two vehicles on the Hasseltsbahn (N715), injured four. The collision occurred at around 7:30 p.m. at the junction with Lobenstraat. A car was driving on Hasseltsbahn in the direction of Hasselt, when another car coming from Lübenstraat turned left onto the road to head towards Lommel. The oncoming car hit the left wing.
The mother was trapped in the wreckage and firefighters had to extract her. At the scene, the emergency services gave her first aid, after which she was taken to Gessa Hospital in Hasselt in critical condition. In the other car, a Belt couple sustained minor injuries and were taken to Belt Hospital. The local Kempinland Police carried out the necessary checks.
