It is a rather unusual traffic accident that occurred Wednesday 2nd October 2019, shortly after noon, in Derval (Loire-Atlantique), at a locality called La Touche. A truck has indeed ended its race in the ditch.
The truck was fully loaded. According to the gendarmerie company of Châteaubriant (Loire-Atlantique), the rear axle of the truck bit down the side and the driver lost control of his vehicle, which ended up in the ditch.
No injuries, but a great fright
The driver was not injured but he was shocked. He has passed checkups at the hospital.
