This Friday, February 17, a week after the accident caused by Pierre Palmade, the condition of the three victims remains worrying.

A week after the evening that changed their lives, the three people injured in theaccident car involving the comedian Pierre Palmade are not all out of the woods. This Friday, February 17, the Melun prosecutor indicated that the 38-year-old man and his 6-year-old son are still hospitalized.

They are “in intensive care, in serious condition,” said the magistrate. Words that match the statements of Mr. Mourad Battikhlawyer for the three victims, who had deplored their “catastrophic” state last Wednesday.

According to information from CNEWS, the child, who was sitting in the back of the car, came out of a coma but has a broken jaw. He cannot eat, drink or speak normally and is fed by a tube.

His father, who was driving the crashed car, is still in a coma. He has multiple fractures, including feet, shoulders, legs and arms. He has already undergone six operations and a seventh, at the level of the pelvis, is planned.

The third victim, a 27-year-old woman, is the driver’s sister-in-law. She was six and a half months pregnant at the time of the collision and lost her Babe, a baby girl, after an emergency cesarean delivery. Her vital prognosis is no longer engaged but she remains hospitalized. She had been trying for a child for several years and had undergone several in vitro fertilizations (IVF).

Pre-trial detention required

An investigation was opened for “manslaughter” to determine if the baby had died before delivery or if he lived a few seconds before his death. According to the prosecutor of Melun, Jean-Michel Bourlès, “the autopsy carried out did not make it possible to establish if this child was born alive. A complementary expertise has been ordered on this point”.

Pierre Palmade was himself injured in the accident. He was initially hospitalized in Kremlin-Bicêtre, before being transferred to the Melun hospital center to be heard by investigators under police custody.

He was presented to an examining magistrate this Friday, with a view to an indictment for “homicide and involuntary injuries”. He is accused of having driven while “having used products narcotics as a legal recidivism”, since he tested positive for cocaine.

His placement in pre-trial detention was requested while his two presumed passengers, suspected of having fled after the accident, were presented to the investigating judge for “failure to assist a person in danger”.
