The deadly accident took place on Rue de l'Europe in Belgium just across the border from Petange.

The car in question was driving in the direction of France when it flipped over and caught fire. Firefighters from Petange/Bascharage responded to the incident, joining efforts with their Belgian colleagues to extinguish the flames. Emergency doctors from Esch and Longwy were also present to support the emergency services.

One person died on the spot. A second individual suffered severe injuries and was brought to the hospital. According to the Belgian media, both people were Luxembourg residents but the Belgian prosecutor's office has yet to confirm this information.
