A young SBM employee had a lucky escape when the Audi he was driving hit a pillar in the Millennium Tunnel 4:30 am on the morning of December 26, local French-language daily Monaco-Matin reports.
The impact was so severe that the emergency services thought they’d have to remove his remains with a small spoon, Monaco’s Criminal Court heard.
The young man avoided jail, and was sentenced to four months suspended and ordered to pay three fines of €45 each for driving while over the drink-driving limit.
During his annual address to the press, National Council President Stéphane Valeri was optimistic for 2022, saying "there are reasons to hope that we can get back to a quasi-normal life.”
Nice Côte d’Azur airport ended 2021 with over 6.5 million passengers passing through, higher than expected and fuelled mainly by a strong summer season and the return of long-haul flights.
It is expected to be another mild, sunny weekend at the region’s ski resorts with plenty of standing snow, while Valberg will be hosting a Monte-Carlo Rallye event on Friday.
The celebration of Sainte Devote, Monaco’s Patron Saint, will be held next week, and again this year the Principality is taking adapted measures to ensure the health and safety of all who wish to participate.
