A 35-year-old woman whose identity was not released was involved in a fatal accident on Friday 8th of October 2021.
The incident happened around 9:30 am near the Esso gas station located at the corner of rue Saint-Simon when a driver from a company in Bourgoin-Jallieu was exiting a construction site. According to witnesses, the driver was turning right towards the Porte de Vaise when a woman entered to cross the street.
According to the report, the woman was deaf so she did not hear the truck arrive and the driver, he did not see her coming. She was struck hard by a dumping truck she slipped under the wheels and was killed instantly.
The emergency services were unable to do anything for her and the death of the victim, who lived in a home in the neighborhood, was noted at the scene of the accident.
The driver of the truck, a 51-year-old man with no previous history, was very shocked by the accident, according to officials.
An investigation is still ongoing but alcohol was not the factor in the accident.
