The incident occurred along the motorway in the direction of Ettelbruck, near Roost. According to the caller, the driver just continued driving after the incident.

With the plate number, police were able to track down the the female owner of the car. She informed the officers that her boyfriend had left earlier with the vehicle.

The car had deep scratches on it, indicating a previous accident.
