The exact circumstances surrounding the accident are still unclear. A 20 year-old man that was on one of the scooters was taken to hospital in a critical condition. The person that was on the other scooter, a man aged 42 was slightly injured. He refused to take a breath test and was detained by police.
Thursday’s accident was not the first involving scooters in Brussels. A couple of months ago a man died after he fell off his scooter on the Haachtsesteenweg in the Brussels district of Haren.
