Excerpt with English subtitles, full video below:

From Radio Netherlands:

Queen's Day celebrations in Apeldoorn ended in tragedy, with five people killed and 12 injured, five of them seriously. Just before noon a man deliberately drove his car at high speed into a crowd watching an open-topped coach carrying the Royal Family pass by.

The driver is a 38-year-old Dutchman. The public prosecutor says the man told police the target of this attack was the Royal Family, a crime punishable with a maximum jail sentence of 30 years. The public prosecutor has ruled out terrorism.

The car missed the royal coach by 15 metres and came to a standstill when it crashed into a well-known monument. The driver was injured and had to be cut from his vehicle. He was arrested and taken away for interrogation. He is in hospital and his condition is critical.

  2. Every single state in the United States has its own different set of car accident law. From responsibility to how damages are paid, each issue has its own car accident law and it is very difficult for the average citizen to be aware of and understand how each of these laws might affect them if they are in an accident. Because every aspect of a car accident seems to have its own car accident law per each state, it is often a very good idea to hire a car accident attorney if you are ever involved in a car accident. Car accident law often deals with the issue of fault in an accident. Some car accident law not only deals with how much an individual can be blamed for being at fault, but sometimes how much can be rewarded for damages. Other car accident law limits how car accident victims can receive compensation for their losses and damages. If you insist on filing out your own car accident claim, you are going to have to have an excellent understanding of your state's car accident law regarding such issues.
