“Accident not Volvo?s fault”

In the third week of the trial to establish responsibility for a fire in the Mont Blanc tunnel, which killed 39 people almost six years ago, French lawyer Alain Jakubowicz said on Monday that Volvo did not cause the accident.

The French lawyer said that the safety procedures contributed to so many losing their lives and safety issues are primarily the responsibility of the tunnel management companies, SITMB and ATMB.
