Drunk driving was the cause of numerous other accidents across Flemish Brabant over the weekend.
The judicial authorities in Leuven report that ten other drivers had their licences confiscated in the Leuven Judicial Area that covers the east of the province, nine of these due to excess alcohol. The tenth had been taking drugs.
One such example was a man in his thirties from Huldenberg that hit an electricity pole with his car in the Breembosstraat. He abandoned his car.
When police got him out of bed on Sunday morning he still had 2.18 pro mille alcohol in his blood.
