For the time being, trucks will not drive past the spot in Nieuw-Beijerland where seven people died in an accident last weekend. At the request of local residents, the diversion route has been adjusted, Rijnmond reports.

Due to work this week, freight traffic still passed the place where the tragedy took place.

“Relatives and local residents have asked to temporarily reduce freight traffic on the Zuidzijdsedijk, especially around the intersection where the tragic accident took place. We understand this request. We want to comply with this request out of compassion and respect,” says the municipality. .

Farewell to victims

On Saturday evening, a Spanish truck driver drove into a neighborhood barbecue. Six adults, including a pregnant woman, were killed. A number of people were also injured. The truck driver is still in custody.

In the municipality of Hoeksche Waard, a number of killed victims are said goodbye today. There is a week of mourning in the congregation.
