Man who caused fatal accident fined, licence conditionally suspended

On Friday, a 20-year-old man from Nuenen was sentenced by the court in Den Bosch. He was fined EUR2,500 and received an eight-month conditional driving disqualification for causing a fatal accident.

In June 2018, the man drove his van into the back of a traffic jam on the A50 near Eindhoven. A 42-year-old Bulgarian was killed, and the two passengers in the same car were seriously injured.

According to the public prosecutor, the man drove carelessly, inattentively, and too fast. Based on the evidence, the court did not agree with the public prosecutor. They could not find any evidence that the man was driving faster than allowed before, or during, the collision. It is also unclear whether the Nuenener could see the matrix display boards that indicated a lower speed and whether they were already on at the time of the collision.

Eyewitnesses have said that the man drove a little faster, but with the traffic. As a result, the court did not find enough proof that the 20-year-old man drove irresponsibly. The man was on his way home from work and was not under the influence of alcohol.
