One person was killed and two injured in an accident involving a Bentley convertible registered in Monaco in the early hours of Easter Monday morning on the A8 autoroute. The fatality is believed to be a Russian citizen who was at the wheel of the luxury car.

The Bentley collided with a second vehicle at about 5:00 am, four kilometres west of the Villeneuve-Loubet off-ramp, direction Aix. A further dozen vehicles were damaged as a result of debris on the carriageway.

Emergency services were still on the scene at 7:00 am and experts were called in to try to determine the cause of the accident.
