A British driver has been released without charge after a male migrant was run down and killed and his wife injured on a motorway near Calais, French prosecutors said.
The motorist, Abraham Reichman, 35, is said to have swerved to try and avoid a gang that was trying to stop traffic on the busy A16 road.
This is a common tactic used by UK-bound migrants who want to get aboard lorries and vans heading for the Channel Tunnel or ferries heading for England.
When the driver realised he had hit two people, he stopped to investigate but was immediately confronted by the mob of UK-bound migrants.
The accident took place at junction 47 of the A16, which starts on the Belgian border and heads towards the Paris suburbs.
Pascal Marconville, the prosecutor in nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer, said: ‘He stopped to try to rescue the victim but was violently attacked by several migrants and preferred to leave.’
Mr Marconville said the motorist drove to a police station at the entrance to the Channel Tunnel and gave a full statement.
He tested negative for alcohol and drugs, and his testament suggested the horrifying incident was caused by an accident.
Mr Marconville said the driver was not charged, and was free to carry on with his journey by early on Monday.
Mr Reichman is understood to be the director of a jewellery import business based in Tottenham, north London.
