I had the exact same train of thought, assumed it was a training incident at first. This seems extremely seriousWow, when I first saw the news on Twitter, I was certain he had been out training on his bike.
But this sounds extremely bizarre:
"A car was waiting at the traffic lights at the intersection of Kapellensteenweg, Statiestraat and Dorpsstraat around 8:30 am. The driver (Van Hooydonck), who had become unwell, suddenly crossed the intersection and hit five cars that were queuing on the other side.
He was resuscitated at the scene and was taken to hospital when he was conscious. The man is said to be in mortal danger. His pregnant wife was also taken to hospital for a check-up. Another driver and a child passenger were slightly injured. The Kapellensteenweg is closed for the time being."
