A truck driver was forced off the road by three cars on the Maas en Waalweg (N322) near Beneden-Leeuwen on Monday morning in an attempted robbery. The trucker survived the incident unharmed and nothing was stolen, RTL Nieuws reports.

“It was an attempted robbery in which my driver was forced to stop by three cars”, the owner of Ünsal Transport in Roermond, which employs the trucker, said to Omroep Gelderland. The truck was transporting a cargo of clothes for Primark from Germany to the Netherlands, according to the broadcaster. The business owner added that shots were fired.

The police could only say that the trucker was threatened and that he was not hurt. During the robbery, the panicked truck driver sent a message to his contact at the delivery address, the Telegraaf reports. “Help, help, my wife and children”, the message read, according to the newspaper. 

The N322 was closed for a time while the police investigated. The highway was reopened just after 8:00 a.m. “We are working hard to clarify what happened”, a police spokesperson said to the Gelderlander.
