The bus lane on Koning Boudewijnlaan has already caused a lot of confusion. There was also a collision on Monday. The car probably drove into the front of the bus and priority was not given to the bus.

The blow was fierce. Both the bus and the car were severely damaged. The driver of the car could not open the door, so a rescue team from the fire brigade was called. The driver of the car was seriously injured. The passenger was slightly injured. Both the driver and two passengers on the bus were injured.

In response to the accident, De Lijn will insist on additional signaling on the bus lane and when entering and leaving the bus lane. This question will be asked to the authorized working company.
