French fries deliverer (29) in mortal danger after heavy blow at intersection | Dentergem

Dentergem/Ruiselede/TieltA serious accident happened at the intersection of Meulebekesteenweg and Ankelaarstraat on Friday evening. Two small vans ended up in the decor. One driver was in critical condition when he was taken to hospital.

A 29-year-old man from Ruiselede, on his way from a chip shop in Tielt to deliver an order at home, drove up the Meulebekesteenweg from the subordinate Ankelaarstraat just after 8.30 pm. A 50-year-old motorist from Dentergem, coming from the direction of the center, was surprised by that maneuver and was unable to avoid a collision. The blow was unusually violent. The French fries deliverer’s car was caught in the left flank. The two Citroën Berlingos came to a stop beside the road: one in a canal, the other in a field.

Traffic expert called

The 50-year-old man from Dentergem was able to climb out of his vehicle himself. The fire brigade of the Aarsele station rushed to the spot to free the other driver from the wreckage. That went pretty smoothly. The victim from Ruiselede suffered serious head injuries and was in life-threatening condition. He was given the most urgent care at the scene. Ambulances from Tielt and Aalter took the victims to the Sint-Andries hospital in Tielt. The public prosecutor’s office sent a traffic expert to Dentergem to reconstruct the circumstances of the accident. The intersection, where collisions have also occurred in the past, was closed to all traffic for several hours.
