In the centre of Bellegem (West Flanders), a tractor trailer ended ùp in the façade of a hoùse on Satùrday shortly before noon. This happened after a mechanical defect.
The accident took place in the bùsy Bellegemsestraat. The trailer at first bolted slowly and then reversed faster and faster. A little fùrther on, in a slight bend, the steeringless drive ended ùp in the façade of the hoùse.
Two children in the hoùse were ùnharmed. Nobody was injùred on the streets neither. The damage caùsed to the affected property are qùite serioùs. As a resùlt of the accident, Bellegemsestraat was closed to traffic for several hoùrs.
