Thursday August 6, around 4:40 p.m., the cantonal police officers carried out a traffic control in Bulle, at the exit of the A12, at the roundabout of Battentin. At the stop signal given by a police officer, a motorist pretended to stop before accelerating and to flee by hitting a police vehicle.

Driving on the bypass road H189 in the direction of Tour-de-Trême, he overtook vehicles by crossing the continuous line several times. Followed by police cars with blue lights and a siren on, the driver suddenly headed towards the city center of Bulle. Suddenly, he lost control of his car and hit an islet on Chemin des Crêts before coming to a permanent stop on the sidewalk.

1 kg de hashish

Arrested on the spot by the police, the 25-year-old driver living in Gruyère was taken to the police station where he was first placed under provisional arrest and subsequently imprisoned. The police found and sequestered 1 kg of hashish in the applicant’s car.

During this event, luckily no one was injured. The offender’s driver’s license was seized on the spot. His vehicle was taken care of by a service garage. An investigation was opened by the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

Road users, who would have been endangered by the fleeing driver behind the wheel of a black car, are asked to contact the Cantonal Police (026 304 17 17).

Policewoman injured in Bern

Almost identical scenario in the canton of Bern. A policewoman was injured in the leg by a motorist who evaded a check on the night from Sunday to Monday in Rubigen. The fugitive, who was traveling at excessive speed, was finally able to be stopped after his vehicle collided with a wall on the side.

The 19-year-old motorist did not have a valid driving license, the Bern-Mittelland Regional Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Bernese Cantonal Police said on Monday. He will have to answer for violations of the law on road traffic (LCR).
