How fast driven by a young driver in his twenties he knocked the kid down in Crepy-en-Valois? This question is difficult for justice to solve after the accident that occurred in Crépy-en-Valois (Oise), on Saturday, September 24, 2022. Around 11:00 p.m., a 10-year-old child was hit by a car in Doctor Calmette Streetwhich is located in the southwestern part of the city.

A few days after this terrible accident, residents of the district are asking how fast the Renault Clio was going. “Here the cars drive fast, we hear the brakes and loud noises on the speed bumps,” testifies the resident of Crépy-en-Valois.

The circumstances of the accident are still unclear

According to the indictment, residents of Crépynois testified to a speed of more than 50 km/h from the car in question, contrary to the driver who claims to be within the rules.

A second resident, spoken to by Actu Oise earlier this week, confides that she often sees “vehicles suddenly speeding up after the second speed bump to the end of the street”. A few meters away, a man closing his shutters reveals that he lives at the foot of one of the street’s two speed bumps.

“While most drivers are careful, some will drive too fast and hit the engine impact protection. We are really bothered by noisy vehicles, especially those with trailers,” he says when he hears about the speed limit on the street. However, this is limited to 30 km/h between the two speed bumps and 50 km/h in the rest of the rue du Docteur Calmette.

The town hall of Crépy-en-Valois did not want to answer our questions about the accident, the speed limit in the street and the behavior of some drivers.
