The police are investigating whether a fatal accident in Reuver last month, in which a 12-year-old girl was killed and her mother seriously hurt, was caused by an illegal street race, the police confirmed to L1 after several sources told the news agency that a street race was taking place at the time of the accident.
The accident happened on Rijksweg at around 9:15 p.m. on April 24. The girl was cycling with her mother when both were hit by a car. Mother and child were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The girl succumbed to her injuries in hospital a few days later.
