In an accident on the A1 motorway at Chavornay VD, a 47-year-old woman died on Monday evening. Her husband and 18-month-old baby survived.
The family from the Canton of Neuchâtel was on the A1 on Monday evening at 20.40 in the direction of Yverdon-les-Bains VD, because the 47-year-old father lost control of the car. As the cantonal police of Vaud announced on Tuesday, the car returned several times before stopping after 40 meters.
Other vehicles were not involved in the accident. The woman who sat in the back seat and was not tied was thrown out of the car. She died at the scene of the accident. The baby of 18 months, who was stuck in a child seat, remained unharmed. Father and child were taken to hospital for control, which they could leave at night. (SDA)
