EXCLUDED RMC. Almost a year after the terrible accident involving Pierre Palmade in Seine-et-Marne, the victims are struggling to get back on their feet. Mila, the 27-year-old young woman who was six months pregnant at the time of the tragedy, is consumed by the sadness of having lost her daughter. She talks about her grief at RMC.
“My life is no longer the same, and it never will be again.” Since February 10, 2023, Mila, a 27-year-old young woman with long black hair tied in a bun, has never recovered from the tragedy.
That day, on a departmental road near Villiers-en-Bière (Seine-et-Marne), comedian Pierre Palmade collided head-on with a car while he was under the influence of drugs.
Inside the vehicle, three people were seriously injured: Yuksel Yakut, the driver, Devrim, his seven-year-old son, and Mila, the latter’s aunt, who lost her baby following the collision while she was six months pregnant.
“I don’t have the strength”
A year later, the young woman’s face, hollowed out by fatigue, bears witness to endless mourning. In her apartment, a three-room apartment located in the Paris suburbs, Mila carries the memory of the woman who was to be her first child. Her daughter’s room, which she chose to call Solin-Hazal, has remained intact since the accident.
The door remains closed: “I still can’t bring myself to move the furniture and all the things that I had installed in preparation for the birth,” explains the young woman. For several years, this school assistant had worked in a school, alongside the children.
“But since the accident, I haven’t returned to work, I don’t have the strength to go back. It reminds me of everything I lost,” she breathes.
From now on, his days are punctuated by his numerous medical appointments. Doctors, physiotherapists, psychologists… For the past year, she has been recruiting specialists to try to recover from her trauma. The rest of her time, Mila spends mainly locked up at home, where she tries to get some sleep, taking advantage of the effect of the antidepressants.
The hope of a trial
After having taken refuge in denial for months, resuming a normal life today resembles an obstacle course.
“Every time I think I’m getting better, I always fall lower,” concedes the young woman.
As in August 2023, when a medical expertise concluded that her baby had died in utero, before the emergency delivery in hospital. Since justice does not consider that a fetus is a living being, only the qualification of “involuntary injuries” could then be used against Pierre Palmade.
“One more trauma,” denounces the young woman. My daughter was killed, she would have been born if this accident had not happened”.
Still haunted by flashbacks of the accident, which make her mourning almost impossible, Mila also suffers from physical after-effects. Following the shock of the collision, she suffered a detached shoulder blade which still prevents her from walking normally.
“But I don’t want to be looked at with pity,” insists the young woman, who is only waiting for one thing: a trial, and the hope of convicting the one who “took my future away from me”.
The investigation, led by an investigating judge, ended on November 13, 2023. The public prosecutor of Melun must now take his requisitions imminently, and therefore decide whether he will refer Pierre Palmade to court . And for what reasons.
