It was a banal check that went wrong. A 25-year old police trainee was hurt after being hit by a two-wheeler in Amilly (Loiret), on Saturday evening. Our colleagues from France Bleu Orleans and La Republique du Center reported the incident.
These facts were discovered near a roundabout at 11:15 p.m. Loic Abrial, Montargis' public prosecutor, stated that the driver of the two wheeler was not wearing a helmet and refused to undergo a traffic check. He continued on his way and then intentionally struck the young officer.
The two-wheeler driver fled the scene and left his vehicle behind. Police have identified the 18-year old man and are actively looking for him.
An investigation has been opened into attempted intentional homicide against a public official.
