Belgian News - Three dead in a car accident near NATO in Evere

Was driving to work today and traffic was really slow near NATO. Looked over to see the worst car accident I've ever seen.. it was a single car accident that happened earlier that morning. The police were still there cleaning the scene, and the news photographers were just arriving.

The car was completely split into two, one half was lying next to a tree, covered with tarp, the top of the tree was completely shaved off, and the other half of the car was on the other side of the highway.

Must have been travelling at a really high speed for this to happen... this section of road isn't even highway, it's the spot where the local road "becomes" the A201, which feeds into Brussels. On my way back home, I saw the police had completely removed the tree from the area, probably too many bad reminders of a horrible accident.
