Four killed in car crash, Kanton Fribourg

Another tragic story.
Four young people all died in car crash, near the village of Grolley in Kanton Fribourg. Two men and two women were aged between 18 and 26.
Alcohol is reported not to be a factor, although it is possible that the driver worked in auto tuning.

No other vehicles were reported to be involved, and (the sad thing) is that the dead occupants were not discovered for about 24hrs. after the accident, when at least one was reported missing.

The car was found , in trees, about 30m down a wooded bank, from the road, so was not obvious for passing motorists to see, however (seeing some video), I'm surprised that some of the roadside tracks weren't investigated.

Re: Four killed in car crash, Kanton Fribourg

This has pretty much stunned the entire canton. There was a memorial march to the scene of the accident yesterday, attended by over 1000 people. One of the victims has a young son and is from my commune. I know the road, it's not particularly windy or dangerous, so I can only suppose excess speed may turn up to be the cause.
Very sad indeed

The dead 18 yr. old Portuguese girl came from my Gemeinde/Commune, and not sure if the same or the other girl was a friend of the daughter of one of my wife's colleagues.

Fribourg is such a small place isn't it? I'm sure we both know someone who knows the victims. Just brings it one step closer to home
