This Saturday evening, a vehicle hit a truck that was parked along a road in Antwerp following a chase with the police. The driver had fled after refusing to stop during a check.
Immediately after the crash, the man who was driving tried to shake off the police on foot. He was wearing an electronic bracelet and was arrested a little later, explains the Nieuwsblad. But that’s not what makes this story unusual.
In fact, a total of six people were in the accident vehicle. All fled except one. This person, the driver’s mother, waited for the police to set off in pursuit of her five comrades to return to the vehicle in order to recover… a packet of fries she had just bought.
Nice try, but failed. Like the other five occupants of the vehicle, she was arrested.
