The A28 between Zwolle and Meppel was closed for hours in the night from Saturday to Sunday after a wild chase by the police. The driver of the car that was being chased jumped out of the car and still fled.

Rijkswaterstaat reports that the police investigation was completed around 7 a.m. and that the road was cleared again. The police were still unable to say anything at 8:00 am about the progress of the investigation and the driver's hunt.

The man jumped out of his black Audi at the start of the night after police cars drove him after a long chase at the Nieuwleusen exit.

According to De Stentor , the man managed to escape by running across the other lane, between the speeding traffic. A major search with a police helicopter would have yielded nothing.

The Explosive Clearance Service Defense (EOD) is said to have investigated the car. It is unclear why the police initially chased the man.

In a chase on the # A28, the driver jumped out of the car and fled. The car is still on the highway and we are now investigating it. That is why the A28 is closed between the #Ommen and #Nieuwleusen exits. ^ MB
