Le fourgon plonge dans le ravin à Cauterets

Une famille revenait d'une journée de pèlerinage à Lourdes lorsque leur véhicule a quitté la route.

.

Dimanche 16 juillet 2017, à 20 h 10, sur la route départementale 920 près de Cauterets (Hautes-Pyrénées), les sapeurs-pompiers et les gendarmes de la brigade de proximité d'Argelès-Gazost (Hautes-Pyrénées) se sont déplacés pour un accident matériel.

Cette grande famille originaire de l'Indre-et-Loire passait ses vacances à Cauterets depuis 15 jours.

A seulement quatre kilomètres de l'arrivée le père, qui conduisait le véhicule, s'est endormi laissant la voiture quitter la route et finir sa course au fond d'un ravin, dix mètres plus bas a rapporté La Dépêche du Midi. Le minibus est tombé dans le jardin de la seule habitation des gorges de Pierrefite en évitant tous les arbres sur son chemin et même le garage de la maison à la fin de la chute. Fort heureusement, aucun membre de la famille n'a été blessé. Il se pourrait que le conducteur se soit assoupi au volant puis qu'il ait raté un virage.

Après avoir examiné les victimes de l'accident, la décision a été prise d'évacuer les deux plus jeunes enfants vers l'hôpital le plus proche pour des examens de contrôles.
