Forklift truck foils robber's getaway

Tom Webster



The rules of a swift getaway from the scene of a crime are simple. Make sure you have enough petrol, don't stall, and definitely don't crash into anything badly enough to immobilise your car.

The alleged thief in this case managed to pass the first two requirements, but failed spectacularly in the third as he collided with the forklift truck driven by the owner of the store in Norway he was trying to burgle.
