ROOSENDAAL – An old man was seriously injured on Wednesday afternoon when he landed on a truck with his moped. The accident happened at the intersection of the Borchwerf and the Western Havendijk in Roosendaal. Nothing is left of the moped.
The head of the man has been stabilized on site by ambulance staff. Then the man was rushed to the hospital. There was also a trauma helicopter. The trauma doctor went with the ambulance.
How the accident happened and which injuries the man has exactly is still unclear. The crossing has been deposited.
The truck driver has been arrested. This always happens after such an accident and does not want to say anything about his role or share in the accident. A witness calls the crossing dangerous because of the poor visibility through the bridge.
