A 5 year old child was hit by a car in the Dordogne. It was helicoptered to Bordeaux. The driver of the vehicle is in custody for hit and run
A serious traffic accident occurred on Friday, June 18, in Saint-Médard-de-Mussidan. It was 5.30 p.m. when a car crossed the road of a mother and her 5-year-old son on a bicycle, traveling on the road to Bassy. The driver, for some reason that the investigation will have to elucidate, struck the child.
He was seriously injured in the shock. For relief, his state of health required a helicopter to the Bordeaux hospital center.
The respondent’s car did not remain there, without knowing whether it was a voluntary attitude or whether the driver was not aware of the impact. Thanks to the indications given by the mother, the motorist was arrested shortly after by the gendarmes. He was taken into custody for hit and run.
