The rider of a quad bike in the early hours of Thursday morning in Luxembourg City, was not only injured after crashing having hijacked a bus lane, but also had his licence revoked.

After arriving at Centre Hamilius at about 4:30am, the rider did not turn left as the road signs indicate, but instead continued straight on using the bus lane on Avenue Monterey.

However, as the rider approached the roadworks, someone during the night had moved a roadworks protection fence across the bus lane.

The quad bike struck the fence with force throwing the rider from his quad to the ground.

Emergency services quickly arrived at the scene and administered first-aid.

A subsequent breathalyser test then confirmed that the rider was well above the legal alcohol limit, and his licence was immediately revoked.
