A Ford driver died in a traffic accident in Valais.
A 51-year-old from Geneva had an accident in Valais on Tuesday. He was injured so badly that he died on the spot. The driver was on a forest road in the “Riondet” district near Commeire in the municipality of Orsières.
As the Valais canton police write, his Ford came off the road in a hairpin bend for reasons that are not yet known. The car then fell down an embankment before coming to rest on a tree in a lower-lying wooded area.
Third parties who were able to locate the vehicle immediately alerted the rescue services. However, they could only determine the death of the vehicle driver, who lived in the Lower Valais. The public prosecutor’s office, in cooperation with the cantonal police, has launched an investigation. (man)
