Dutch driver drove deliberately by clicking on the ‘Yellow Shirts’-protester’

The 50-year-old Dutch driver in Dongen on Friday a Belgian ‘Yellow Bibs’-protester doodreed, reed deliberately by while the man in front of his truck was.

That say eye witnesses in interview with Belgian media. The incident happened at the Belgian town of Visé on the highway in the direction of Maastricht.

Two protesters were all trucks. The Dutch driver wanted to drive. The victim went according to Belgian media for the truck, and tapped with a key on the window of the car.

Then would the driver gas. The protester slipped and went under the lorry. He died on the spot.

The Dutch driver was on Saturday held in the near Tilburg. That confirmed the police earlier on Sunday to NU.nl.

After the incident, asked the nearby Belgian police on the driver to take something away. The truck driver drove then away towards the Netherlands.

The Belgian ‘Yellow Shirts’ are inspired on the eponymous protest movement in France. There, the protests in the first instance, on the rising fuel prices, but in the meantime, the focus shifted to the policy of the French president, Emmanuel Macron.
