Further to the tragic accident on Saturday in Montbazens, where a man driving a tractor ran over two children and killed them, the driver was questioned on Sunday.

At the scene of the accident, the driver was tested for alcohol, and he was found to be over the limit.

The police released a statement on Monday to say that the driver was previsouly convicted in 2011 for driving under the influence of alcohol in Aveyron. The hearing continues.

A psychological unit was set up on Saturday and a psychologist is on hand at the deceased girl's school.  The boy was from the Lot, and was visiting his father.
