Shortly before midnight, Saturday 13th April, on the road Châteaubriant-Soudan, a frontal collision between two cars caused three serious injuries. Both drivers were transported to Nantes University Hospital. One of the passengers is under observation at the hospital of Châteaubriant.
The frontal shock occurred shortly before midnight, Saturday 13th April, on the RD771 between Châteaubriant and Soudan. The accident occurred in a bend, at the height of the place Le Gué du pont. One of the vehicles was likely overtaking and hit the other one with full force.
The car from Soudan was occupied by a couple of twenty years, living in Saint-Nazaire. Opposite, a 30-year-old driver and a 22-year-old passenger from Tours.
Both drivers had to be extricated by firefighters. The youngest was transported by ambulance to the Nantes University Hospital. The vital prognosis has been a committed time. He seems out of the woods, despite polytrauma. The young woman who accompanied him was able to get out of the vehicle. However, her condition requires hospitalisation in Châteaubriant.
The driver of the other vehicle, also multi-traumatised, was helicoptered to Nantes. The passenger is unscathed.
The results of alcohol and narcotic tests are not yet known.
