The deformation of the Renault Clio, the only vehicle involved in the accident, suggests the violence of the impact. This Thursday, around 1 p.m., the car was traveling on the D39 in the direction Plogonnec-Quimper when, for some still undetermined reason, at the height of the place called Crenal, in a slight descent and before a curve, it crossed the roadway to come and roll on the opposite bern. According to the first elements gathered on the spot, in its race, the car passed over the Steïr, sinking three to four meters below, before striking the top of the bank opposite, to bounce back while making a sun. . The car finished its race on the roof, on the mast, about fifteen meters away.
Front passenger extricated in vain
The front passenger, a 37-year-old male, died within minutes of the crash. The driver, a 25-year-old man, sustained serious injuries to his leg. The rear passenger was only slightly injured. According to our information, the three victims would be employees of Cadiou Industrie, in Locronan.
The accident allegedly took place without a witness. Discovering the damaged vehicle, it was a motorist who notified the emergency services. Very quickly, around fifteen firefighters were involved in the intervention with the Smur team and the Civil Security helicopter. The attempt to resuscitate the thirty-something that the firefighters managed to extricate, was in vain. Suffering from an open fracture in his leg, the driver was eventually evacuated by land to Quimper hospital, freeing the helicopter and its crew. The rear passenger was also taken to hospital in shock.
Falling asleep, faintness, inattention, dazzling… The circumstances of the accident remain all the more difficult to understand as no sign of braking punctuates the trajectory of the car, neither on the road nor on the bern.
Traffic on the axis connecting Quimper to Plogonnec was cut between 1:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., the time to remove the car after the evacuation of the victims and to let the departmental service teams secure the scene of the accident.
