Last night, the owner of the car that was lifted out of the Biesven’s waters shortly before was taken into custody by the police.
The car owner is an 18-year-old Eindhoven resident. He is suspected of being involved in a hit-and-run car accident earlier that evening. The suspect reported to the police that his car was stolen. However, the police believe that he was involved in the hit-and-run accident himself. While arriving at his home to further investigate, the police discovered that he was wounded, most probably as a result of the accident. The driver of the car that was hit incurred neck and back injuries.
Just after finding the car in the water, a Trauma Chopper and a divers team from Den Bosch arrived at the scene, only to discover that the car and the area surrounding it were empty.
