A resident of Frouzins, a town located a few kilometers from Toulouse, lost control of his Clio on a very busy road near Plaisance-du-Touch in Haute-Garonne. The car collided violently with a car with four occupants on board. The young man could not be revived.
The accident occurred at the beginning of the afternoon this Saturday, May 25 on the RD 42 in the town of Plaisance-du-Touch. A 25-year-old man was returning to his home in Frouzins at the wheel of his Clio when his car bit the side of this very busy road axle. The young motorist instantly lost control of his vehicle. According to the witnesses, the Clio would have found itself for a moment perpendicular to the road and would have struck with rare violence a Renault Laguna which was traveling in the opposite direction.
On the spot, a major rescue system was deployed, comprising teams of firefighters from the barracks of Saint-Lys and Colomiers and from Smur 31. The firefighters extracted from the passenger compartment of the Clio the person who was , at the time of their arrival, in cardiopulmonary arrest. Firefighters were unable to resuscitate her. In the other vehicle were referring four people from the same family who were going to a wedding.
Elderly person taken to hospital
Among them was an elderly lady who was taken to hospital but suffered only minor injuries. The other passengers of the vehicle, very shocked by the accident, were taken care of by the medical teams on site but would have emerged unscathed from the collision. This stretch of road was neutralized for about three hours so that the rescue teams could operate in safety. Motorists were deflected by the police as they approached the accident, which took place very close to Chemin de Montet. Traffic has recently resumed. As the procedure requires, toxicological analyzes will be carried out on the victim’s body. The investigation carried out by the gendarmes of the Toulouse-Mirail company will make it possible to determine the circumstances of the tragedy on this road deemed to be accident-prone, in particular because of the narrowness of its roadway.
