Six people were injured, including a nine-year-old boy and a 35-year-old woman, in a road accident in Autignac, Hérault.
The accident occurred late morning on Thursday on the RD909, a road notorious for accident black spots.
Two cars hit each other at “high velocity” according to the police. A 35 year-old woman had to be cut out of her car, and together with the nine year-old boy she was taken to Montpellier hospital by helicopter.
The people in the other car were not as badly injured. A two year old girl, two boys aged eight and 11, and a 66 year-old man were transported to Béziers hospital.
The RD909 was closed for some time.
