A mother and four children were victims of a serious road accident this Monday, a little before 8 a.m., at a place called La Chauvelais, in Carentoir (56). A 13-year-old girl was killed and a 9-year-old boy, polytrauma, was evacuated by the Civil Security helicopter Dragon 56 to Pontchaillou hospital, in Rennes. Another passenger, a young girl in relative urgency, was also directed to Pontchaillou.

As for the driver, a 39-year-old mother, she was transported in a state of relative emergency to the Sud hospital in Rennes. In the car, there was also a 9-year-old girl, who was also taken care of by the emergency services.

A very shocked witness

Firefighters were originally called in about a burning car, but when they got there, they found it to be a car that was initially wrecked.

Before the arrival of help, four witnesses had evacuated the wounded from the vehicle, to spare them the flames. One of the witnesses, a very shocked 39-year-old man, had to be taken into care at the CHBA.

The accident, the causes of which have not yet been clarified, mobilized, in addition to the gendarmes and the road services, firefighters from Campénéac, La Gacilly, Malestroit, Ploërmel and Questembert.
