Not really an explanation. A lack of control no doubt, but a tragic and relentless observation: a 28-year-old man lost his life on Tuesday May 23 in a car accident on departmental 3, between Saint-Étienne-du-Bois and Val-Revermont. No direct witness of leaving the road. It was 7 p.m. when the emergency services were alerted by a passing motorist.
The Peugeot Partner vehicle, badly damaged, was stuck in the undergrowth of Mortevieille, partly hidden by vegetation, along a fairly accident-prone straight line, between the exit of Saint-Etienne and the Or Brun establishments, in Treffort . Found lifeless near the vehicle, probably ejected in the shock, the driver was quickly declared dead by a Smur doctor.
Gendarmes and firefighters made sure that no other victim was in the passenger compartment or nearby, or even under the carcass of the vehicle. The mayor of Saint-Étienne-du-Bois Alain Chapuis was on site.
The victim lived in Meillonnas
According to the first observations made by the gendarmes of the community of brigades of Ceyzériat, the vehicle was traveling from Saint-Étienne-du-Bois in the direction of Val-Revermont. It seems that he left the road, at the entrance of a forest path along the road, separated by a ditch. The car would have traveled nearly 150 meters before ending its race in the woods.
Did the driver try to avoid a stray animal? A few seconds of inattention at the wheel? Impossible to know.
Aged 28, he lived in the town of Meillonnas. The gendarmes, with the mayor of the town, had the heavy responsibility, in the evening, of warning the family of the terrible news.
