– On Sunday morning, two youths were killed in a car crash at Vengaron
The rescue team, which arrived quickly and in large numbers, could do nothing to save the young driver and her passenger.
We feared the worst. This is twice. The occupants of the car died at the scene of the accident on the A1 Jura road towards Geneva, shortly before the Wengeron interchange, this Sunday morning. As soon as the alarm went off, a large number of people arrived, and by a few minutes before 10 a.m., the rescue workers – police, ambulance, firemen – could do nothing.
The press release of the Geneva Police mentions the circumstances of the accident: “The vehicle swerved from right to left and then overturned. Emergency services were only able to observe the death of the driver, who was born in 1999, and his passenger, who was born in 1998. The Road and Accident Brigade (BRA) is investigating under the direction of the Ministry of Public Works.
Joanna Matta, spokesperson for Geneva’s cantonal police, notes that this is “the fourth fatal accident on Geneva roads in 2022, bringing the death toll to five”. “A section of the highway between Koppet and the airport is closed to Geneva-bound traffic,” he added.
At 2pm, more than four hours after the events, experts were on site to record and record all the elements that could better understand the reasons for this tragic motorway exit.
