First fatal electric scooter accident in Brussels

A 41-year-old man lost his life last April in what appears to be the first fatal accident in Brussels involving an electric scooter, said a spokeswoman on Monday for the Brussels public prosecutor’s office, Stephanie Lagasse.

The police were called just after midnight on April 17th to the Chaussée de Haecht, where they found a seriously wounded man with an electric scooter at his feet.

After examining video surveillance footage, it appeared that the man was the only person involved in the accident.

The man died on April 18th.
