Although the vital prognosis of the driver and a passenger is not in jeopardy, their condition remains very worrying at the moment. The two men were transferred to the Salpêtrière hospital and the Henri-Mondor hospital, say the Paris firefighters.

In the accident, ten other people were injured, but more lightly. They were still treated by emergency services and taken to hospitals in the capital. According to the first findings of the police, the man who was behind the wheel of the vehicle fell asleep, explains the daily.

Journalist Clément Lanot took images of the vehicle embedded in the tree.
