AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, August 30, 2022 (ABCNews247.com) – The police have arrested a 28-year-old man from Den Bosch, who was allegedly involved in a fatal collision in Schijndel. Last Tuesday, an 85-year-old man from Boxtel was hit by a van on Molendijk-Noord. The driver continued to drive after the collision.
Soon after the collision, it became clear that the accident had been filmed by multiple security cameras. According to the police, the images show that the van came from the direction of Sint-Michielsgestel, hit the 85-year-old cyclist from behind and then drove recklessly in the direction of Den Dungen. According to witnesses, the driver must have noticed something of the collision.
Thanks to the camera images, the owner of the van has now been identified. That was not as easy as it sounds, the police say. “We have images of the company car, but the quality is not good. Our IT specialists sharpened the images, making the license plate largely legible. Only the last digit was missing.”
It turned out to be enough for the solution in the end. “After some puzzling, the last number was found. That led us to the suspect of this fatal accident.” The 28-year-old man is in custody and will be presented to the examining magistrate later this week.
