Bizarre hit-and-run on Antwerp bridge

A 48-year-old woman is fighting for her life after being knocked down in a bizarre road accident on a bridge over the Albert Canal. The woman was hit by a driver involved in an earlier hit-and-run at the same spot involving the victim's daughter.

The 49-year-old woman driver, who caused the accident, was arrested because she was terribly drunk.

The peculiar events started with a driver crashing into the rear of the vehicle belonging to a young couple. The young woman then called her parents for assistance. The parents drove to the spot of the hit-and-run, on the bridge over the Albert Canal, only to be surprised by the driver who had caused the accident and who had now returned to the scene. The driver lost control of her car and crashed into the young couple’s vehicle for a second time injuring the young woman's mother, who had rushed to the scene and was crushed between the two vehicles. The woman suffered life-threatening injuries.
