Cyclist killed after e-bikes crash

A man is dead after a fatal collision involving two electric bikes on a rotunda in the eastern city of Genk (Limburg).

It was around 6:30AM when the two electric bikes that can do up to 45km/h crashed.  The exact circumstances of the collision are the matter of an investigation.

Emergency services including an ambulance and a medical emergency team attended the scene, but all aid came too late for one of the cyclists, a 46-tear-old from Bilzen (Limburg).  The other cyclist suffered injuries and was ferried to a local hospital. The extent of his injuries is unclear.

Prosecutors have dispatched a traffic expert to the scene that has been cordoned off.

Cyclists using this type of e-bike that can do up to 45km/h need to wear a helmet.  The bike too is equipped with a numberplate.
