She travels with her deceased mother in the car, to save money

While the corpse of her 93-year-old mother was in the passenger seat, this motorist drove between Normandy and Paris.

The events took place between Mesnils-sur-Iton, in Eure, and Paris. A woman decided to travel the 120 kilometers separating the two cities accompanied by his mother, who died at 93, in the passenger seat. In reality, she wanted save funeral home transport costs and so she decided to take care of the transport of the corpse.

Is it allowed to travel by car with a deceased person?

Yes and no. Transporting the deceased yourself is legal but in a suitable vehicle. Indeed, health rules must be respected. It is therefore impossible to drive with a corpse in the passenger seat! The late mother would therefore never have found herself in such a position.

It all starts on Thursday January 25, 2024. Around 10 p.m., the Paris police learned of the death of a 93-year-old person by telephone. However, his daughter indicates thatshe died a few hours agot, at 1 p.m., the same day, at Mesnils-sur-Iton (Eure).

Separated from the corpse

Once she arrives in the 10th arrondissement of the capital, the young woman’s journey comes to an end. The police intervene and separate her from the corpse of her mother, who is entrusted to the Paris Forensic Institute, at the request of the prosecution. The motorist’s house in Eure was searched in view of the circumstances and placed under seal.

the girl admitted to wanting to save funeral home transportation costs et to have acted alone. She should have reported the death to a doctor, the police, or the gendarmerie so as not to be bothered by the law. In all cases, the means of transporting a corpse must be “specially designed and exclusively reserved for mortuary transport”.

Please note that if you use the funeral home transport service, you will have to pay approximately 1 euro on average (but we can get to 4 euros!) per kilometer and 10% VAT.

However, a question arises. What was the driver reaction having encountered the woman and her deceased nonagenarian mother in the passenger seat? And you ? How would you have reacted?
