A man jumped in front of a train in Nootdorp on Monday evening while fleeing from the police after hijacking a car in Rotterdam. He was hit by the train and died at the scene, a spokesperson for the police confirmed to NU.nl.
The man "recklessly" drove over several highways during the chase, the spokesperson said. On the A12 at Nootdorp, the hijacked car suddenly came to a stop. The man got out and jumped in front of a passing train.
