A motorist driving through Waldhof on the N11 in the direction of Dommeldange smashed at speed head-on into a tree. The man, sole occupant in the car, was killed by the impact.

According to police the accident occurred on a straight stretch of road at about 5pm on Sunday and apparently no other vehicles were involved. The cause of the accident still remains a mystery, and an icy road possibility has been ruled out. Whether or not the driver was travelling too fast, has still to be clarified by police.

Both police and fire department quickly arrived at the scene.

It has been disclosed that the driver was not the owner of the vehicle.

While the clean-up operation took place, traffic was reduced to one lane.
