The small village of Membach in the municipality of Baelen was the scene of a major road accident on Tuesday evening, around 7 p.m. Indeed, a lady was knocked down while she was walking her dog on the national road which connects Limburg to Eupen. “The crossroads located rue de l’Invasion in Membach in front of the Saint-Quirin chapel is blocked following an accident. The streets going towards Eupen or Dohlain are blocked”, could we read on Facebook.
