According to Bart de Wever the local Burgomaster of Antwerp, a French registered vehicle drove at high speed along the Meir highway into a pedestrianised area of the city centre forcing people to jump aside.

Armed police units quickly stopped the car and arrested the driver who was described as being of north African appearance, and dressed in combat clothing by Serge Muyters the head of police in Antwerp.
