The driver was drunk at the wheel, was speeding and was the holder of a preliminary driving license that doesn’t allow him to drive at the weekend and to carry passengers.
The accident happened at 5:30 AM when the driver lost control of the wheel. The car summersaulted and crashed into a house. Investigators are trying to establish what exactly happened.
Prosecutors say the 20-year-old victim wasn’t wearing a seat belt. Emilie had just started work at a care centre. Director Frank Declerck told reporters: “Emilie was well-liked. Everybody is in shock.”
