jabbeke - A young refugee was killed around 11 p.m. on Monday night when he tried to cross the motorway in Jabbeke, Belgium. He was scooped by a car and died on the spot from his injuries. The young man tried to avoid a police force.

The police held a check on Monday evening at a parking lot along the E40 in Jabbeke. In addition, eleven illegal refugees were arrested earlier in the evening.

A little fugitive in the woods hid in front of the police. When the police officers approached the detection dogs, he set it on a walk.

The young man fled the highway in panic. He tried to cross it and thus escape the agents. The young man almost reached the central reservation when he was being scooped up by a small passenger car. The agents saw it all happen, but could do nothing more. He did not survive the blow. The driver of the car was struck by the accident.

The fire brigade came with a tent to hide the body from view. In the meantime, the police fled the area further. In addition, the surrounding forests were searched. But after a few hours of searching that did not yield any results anymore. For the time being the identity of the victim is still unknown.

Minister of the Interior Jan Jambon regrets the incident, but adds that the police can not be blamed. 'It is a regrettable incident, but the police have just done its job here, I think. They are not blamed, 'he says to VRT NWS.

Governor Carl De Caluwé of West Flanders calls the accident particularly regrettable. 'We have long been afraid of this. You often see transmigrants walking along the highway and it is not the first time that someone is crossing the highway. It had to come out of it. But how can you prevent this? You can hardly drop off the entire motorway. '
