The accident seems to have involved only one car. It occurred around 4 o'clock in the morning. The driver of a Jaguar would have crossed the road before flying over a median. He came to fit into a concrete EDF pole that was cut in half under the violence of the impact.
Upon arrival, firefighters attempted to extricate the driver. An operation that took them two hours. Unfortunately, the 30-year-old is apparently dead instantly and could not be revived. He was from the town of Saint-Symphorien-de-Lay, near Roanne, in the Loire.
If, for the time being, there is no reason to determine the reasons for the accident, speed would be included among the tracks selected.
The investigation was entrusted to the gendarmerie brigade of Dardilly.
