A motorist tried to hit a enforcement officer in Den Bosch with his car shortly after he was fined for illegal parking. The municipality's enforcement officer managed to get out of the way in time and was not hurt, ANP reports.

The officer "miraculously" managed to jump out of the way just in time as the car came at him at high speed, the police said. 

Just before this incident, the motorist insulted the enforcement officer and his colleague, and tried to hit him. The officer managed to avoid this blow too. The man also insulted the officer after trying to run him over, according to the police. Bystanders eventually took him away.

The police consider this attack as attempted manslaughter and are looking for the motorist.
