Driving license suspended of motorist who caused E40 Motorway accident

A woman who caused a serious road accident on the E40 in Zwijnaarde (Ghent) late yesterday had her driving license suspended. Witnesses said how she started to swerve from the middle lane to the right lane, in order to go to the left lane immediately afterwards. She hit the central reservation and also a motorbike rider, who was catapulted to the other side of the motorway (for Brussels-bound traffic). There, the man was hit by a school bus carrying a group of young children. The 50-year-old victim was in a life-threatening condition. The accident caused long tailbacks in both directions.
