A car carrying five students from the International University of Monaco was involved in a serious accident on the Boulevard Charles III over the weekend. A young woman died at the scene and the four other individuals are understood to still be in hospital. 

Tragedy has struck the Principality after five of its young students, all believed to be enrolled at the International University of Monaco, were reportedly involved in a fatal car crash in the early hours of Sunday 17th December. 

The incident occurred close to the border with Cap d’Ail and near the exit of the Millennium tunnel closest to the cemetery at 4.30am.

Five people are thought to have been travelling in the Audi RS24, but the identities of those involved have not yet been publicly confirmed.

Some details have, however, been revealed by the Monaco Public Prosecutor’s Office to Monaco Matin. 

“The driver and the four passengers, all students at the International University of Monaco, were quickly taken care of by the emergency services,” the Public Prosecutor’s Office told Monaco Matin. “However, they confirmed the death of a passenger at the scene of the accident and evacuated two others, whose vital prognosis was in jeopardy, to the Pasteur hospital in Nice. The driver was transferred there the same day and the last passenger remains at the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace.” 

An investigation is currently underway to determine the exact circumstances of the accident.
