An 18-year-old man was killed in an accident on Maasboulevard in Rotterdam on Wednesday. The young man was hanging - voluntarily, according to the police - out of the passenger-side window of a moving car when he hit his head against a pole standing by the road.

The accident happened around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday, according to newspaper AD. The car came to a stop over 200 meters from the pole. Emergency services tried to save the victim at the zebra crossing at Willemsbrug, but it was to no avail. He died at the scene.

The 18-year-old driver was taken to the police station for questioning. The car only sustained damage to its one mirror. There was no one else in the car.
