Two killed in Netherlands after truck hits revellers

THE HAGUE, 28 August 2022, (TON): Dutch police said “at least two people were killed and several others injured after a cargo truck ran off a dike and plowed into a group of revellers.”

The accident happened early Saturday evening when the Spanish-registered truck left the road on the narrow Zuidzijdsedijk, about 30 kilometers south of Rotterdam.

Rotterdam police said “the cargo truck drove into a group of people while they were at a neighborhood barbeque.”

Some in a serious condition, police said “there are several dead and several others have been taken to the hospital.”

A police officer at the scene told the local Rijnmond broadcaster that “at least two people were killed” but that police were still at the scene verifying exact numbers.
