According to the police, they unsuccessfully tried to stop a motorist speeding at 108 km/h, 58 km/h over the legal limit.

The police attempted to get the motorist going from Echternach towards Steinem to stop. He ignored their signs and fled towards Rosport at high speed.

The police followed the driver with flashing emergency lights but were unable to stop him.

They were alerted to an accident in Rue Giesenbour in Rosport shortly after which, unsurprisingly, was caused by the motorist in question.

Despite further attempts to flee from the police, they were later able to locate the driver.

He will be charged shortly.
