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.
