This Monday, an accident occurred on the Dendermondsesteenweg in Wetteren, East Flanders. At least that’s what we thought. Because according to information from Latest newsthe accident was ultimately not one.
The pedestrian who was hit by a driver was apparently the victim of a deliberate act. Still in critical condition, the 44-year-old’s life is still in danger.
It is thanks to the statements of several witnesses that the theory of a voluntary act was explored. They say the victim tried to stop the car after an argument. According to our Flemish colleagues, traces on the road confirm these statements but the investigation is continuing.
The 38-year-old driver was arrested. “The investigation into the circumstances is still ongoing. Many things still need to be clarified,” explains the East Flanders public prosecutor’s office.
