/ Machelen / Diegem –
Three people were killed on Tuesday at the E19 in Machelen in a collision after a police chase. The emergency services and the Halle-Vilvoorde prosecutor’s office confirm this. The three victims were in a car that was being chased after an attempted break-in in Nossegem. One of the three occupants could now be identified as a 20-year-old man from Schaerbeek.
The chase started when the local police of Zaventem was called up for a break-in attempt in Nossegem, near the Mechelsesteenweg. Witnesses reported three persons and a vehicle. Checking that vehicle’s number plate revealed it had been reported stolen. The police tried to stop the car, but it took off at high speed and entered the E19, but in the wrong direction.
At Machelen, the getaway car would have tried to leave the highway via the driveway, but there it came to a head-on collision with a van. The driver of the van suffered only minor injuries, but the three occupants of the escape vehicle did not survive the blow.
One of the three deceased victims could now be identified as a 20-year-old man from Schaerbeek. No identity details are yet known for the other two. The Halle-Vilvoorde public prosecutor’s office has sent a traffic expert on site, as well as the judicial laboratory and a law doctor.
