Couple and grandchild on bikes killed as motorist loses control

A couple in their 60s and their two-year-old grandchild were killed in a traffic accident while out cycling in Limburg on Sunday.

The man, 67, his wife, 64, and the toddler died when a car ploughed into them at around 11.00 hours.

The driver of the car, a 32-year-old Polish national, apparently lost control of the car while cornering, hit a fence and then ended up on the cycle track.

Police are now trying to find out why he lost control of the car.
