(Sorry for my bad English)
What happened?A man in Lyon came on the runway, the car went pretty fast and around twenty police cars and a helicopter stopped him. The Guardian reported that he went through a fence and a toll booth, and the AD (Dutch journal) reports that he came through the arrival hall.
What is the result of this ‘accident’?Some flights are diverted to Marseille, more than 80 flight are cancelled, due to investigation.
The motivation of this is unclear, the 31-years old man is unknown to the police. He is arrested.
This is what a spokesman said:
“Around 10.30 this morning an individual travelling in the wrong direction on the A43 motorway was pursued by members of the motorway CRS (police) and a helicopter from the National Gendarmerie.
“Arriving at the Lyon-Bron airport, he forced his way through the security barriers before heading towards the airport of Lyon Saint-Exupéry where again, he forced the security barriers with his vehicle.
“Followed by the forces of law and order, he drove into Terminal 1 with his car before getting to the runway, where he was overpowered by those forces and arrested.”
What do you guys think, could this be prevented?
More info will come later today.
