The remaining two survivors of a fatal car crash that killed three people are both claiming the other was driving the car.
The tragic accident took place in the village of Hyon in the western Belgium province of Hainaut on 9th September.
Three young men, identified only as Andrea Thirion, 16, Adrien Bucelli-Campus, 19, and Dylan Garrido-Hinojo, 27, lost their lives in the accident.
The driver was reportedly overtaking another car when it was hit by an oncoming vehicle at high speed.
According to the newspaper HLN, the two survivors of the accident are both claiming the other was driving the car at the time.
Lucca, 25, who was in a critical condition until recently, has denied being the driver despite a witness claiming to have seen him behind the wheel, according to HLN.
However, the public prosecutor’s office said the day after the accident that it was Andrea’s half-brother Maxime, 25, who was driving without a valid license and under the influence of alcohol.
Maxime has denied being the driver of the vehicle.
According to HLN, the vehicle, which belonged to Maxime’s girlfriend, was also uninsured and without a MOT.
Dylan’s twin sister Magalie told HLN: “Someone is lying.”
Maxime currently has an electron tag and cannot leave the house while the investigation continues.
Reports said that he has past traffic convictions and his mother has broken contact with him since the accident.
