Fatal collision car and scooter
A scooter and a car collided in Boven-Leeuwden in Gelderland on Thursday evening. A 16-year old girl from Druten was killed. The girl was driving with a 15-year old friend from the same town on a bicycle path on the Trambaan, when they collided with the car. The second youth from Druten was brought to the hospital in Nijmegen in critical condition, the AD reports. The car was being driven by a 57-year old resident of the municipality West Maas en Waal, to which Boven-Leeuwen belongs. How the car ended up on the bicycle track is unknown. The car hit the scooter, which was coming from the opposite direction, head-on. The man has been apprehended as a suspect and brought to the police station for a hearing. A breathalyzer test shows alcohol was not a factor.
