Police have issued a photo of suspects involved in the death of a child in Lorient

The national police launched a call for witnesses, Tuesday 11th June 2019, to find the driver suspected of having struck and killed a child, Sunday, in Lorient (Morbihan).

Nearly 48 hours after a motorist mowed down two children in Lorient (Morbihan), killing one and wounding the other seriously, the National Police broadcast, Tuesday 11th June 2019, an appeal for witnesses with a photo of two suspects. This is the driver of the vehicle and his passenger.

“The police departmental security of Morbihan seek these two individuals likely to be involved,” says the tweet.

Already known to the police

On Sunday 9th June at 5:05 pm, a driver crashed into two children near a McDonald’s restaurant in Lorient after fleeing a roadside check. The eldest, aged 10, has died, while his 7-year-old cousin is still in a coma. He is in intensive care at Brest hospital.

The investigation “allowed the identification of a suspect, not yet arrested, who would have borrowed the vehicle of his mother while he does not hold the driving license,” said prosecutor Laureline Peyrefitte.
