After the fatal accident last Monday, Eindhoven Municipal Council is to examine the traffic situation at the Stationsplein and take any necessary measures to improve it, according to a statement by Alderman Jannie Visscher, reported in the ED.
The Alderman feels that the impact of the accident has been too great to wait for the results of the police report, so the Council is initiating an investigation of the scene now.
Furthermore, the Alderman feels that in future the Council should conduct its own investigations into accidents and not wait for police conclusions.
A 20-year-old woman died from injuries sustained when she was run over by a lorry last Monday on a zebra crossing at the Stationsplein.
