Night of urban violence in Blois after a road accident


Vandalized supermarket, degraded nursery and burnt gas station: the night from Tuesday to Wednesday was marked by numerous urban violence in a district of Blois, after a refusal to comply followed by a road accident. It all started around 6.30 p.m. with a refusal to comply. The vehicle fled, ran a red light and collided with two other cars, according to the same source. The driver fled as his two injured 15 and 18-year-old passengers were taken to hospital.

According to the prefecture of Loir-et-Cher, these two injured in absolute urgency were hospitalized in Tours and Blois. The refusal to comply came during a check by the anti-crime brigade (BAC), she said. From a source close to the case, the two injured are known for acts of delinquency: that of 18 years for twenty acts of common law and that of 15 years for seven acts of common law. The drivers of the two struck vehicles, slightly injured, were also taken to hospital.

Dozens of police and gendarmes on site

As a result of this accident, urban violence broke out in the evening: barricades, fireworks fire, vehicles set on fire. An Aldi supermarket has been vandalized and a crèche degraded. Around 11 p.m., an Avia gas station was set on fire. Then a delivery truck was attacked by rioters. One of them hurled him at the police, jumping just before the shock. The police fired.

Police officers from the Châteauroux, Orléans and Le Mans police stations were called in as reinforcements. Two squadrons of mobile gendarmes, 50 departmental gendarmes, a helicopter and an antenna of the GIGN (intervention group of the national gendarmerie) were also dispatched to the site, according to the gendarmerie. Calm returned around 1am. No injuries are to be deplored among the police, according to the prosecution, who said that there had been no arrests during the night.
