The judicial authorities explained that the chase started in Bree. The suspects got trapped in a dead-end street in Diepenbeek, 30 kilometres further. Their car ended up in a ditch. The police van managed to avoid the car, but eventually crashed as well.
Two people sitting in the car were apprehended. The car owner managed to escape. It was him that police were looking for, as the man still has to spend time in gaol. The judicial authorities started an investigation into the incident.
