Davy Kestman, 32, was sentenced on Friday to 23 years in prison for the murder of Sharon Gruvez, 22, who died in a car accident while driving. On November 1, 2018, a vehicle collided with a parked bus in Ostwletteren.
The guards did not argue that it was just a fatal accident.
The plaintiff also sought a sentence of 25 years in prison.
One day in November 2018, at around 2.40 pm, an accident occurred at a bend in the road from Yepres to Vern. A BMW driven by a 29-year-old man went straight ahead and collided with a bus parked on the side of the road.
The shock was severe. Sharon Gruvez, 22, was thrown several meters and died instantly. Help came fast, but it was too late. The driver was hospitalized with serious injuries
Investigators were quickly asked if there was anything else behind the incident. In fact, no trace of the brakes was found, and the victim’s family quickly wondered if Sharon’s ex-partner, the driver, was not volunteering. “Nothing quickly suggests that there was a complete plan,” the victim’s father told our colleagues on Newsblad. The speed at the time of the accident was 191 km per hour.
