The case of an Austrian accused of deliberately running down and killing a Hungarian policeman took a bizarre twist this week six weeks after the incident when a private video appeared that seems to show the Hungarian police version of the event was not 100% correct.
The version widely reported is that the man not named for legal reasons deliberately drove over the policeman after refusing to stop.
But in the mobile phone video shot by one of the 34-year-old man from Villach's colleagues it can be clearly seen that Hungarian police first of all attacked the man using pepper spray which had left him blinded. Unable to see it shows how he then ran over the policeman.
The man whose current residence is in Salzburg had been to a Hummer rally and was on his way home when the tragedy happened.
The police had also shot at the car of the Austrian man with two of the bullets hitting him on the leg, leaving him needing an operation.
