Alexis Jacquemond, a 20-year-old from Cap d’Ail, has been killed in a scooter accident at the exit of the IM2S tunnel, while travelling in the direction of Nice. Although the accident took place in the early hours of Saturday, July 15, it came to light only on Tuesday, three days later.

The young man had been travelling from a barbecue at Le Méridien in Monaco and was being followed by a friend on a second scooter when Alexis lost control of his vehicle approaching the exit of the tunnel, violently hitting the parapet.

Alerted by his friend, the Monaco fire service, paramedics and the police attended the scene, but the young man could not be saved.
