What really happened?

The circumstances are unclear as the car steered all the way into the pedestrian zone which is located at a distance from the pathway for cars. Pictures circulating on social media of the scene show a silver-colored jeep-sized car with a dented bumper, the windscreen of the car also appears to be cracked. The car of the driver is surrounded by a police vehicle. The pedestrian zone can be seen littered with fallen traffic cones and belongings of the pedestrians who were hit.

The motive of the driver seems unclear at this point. Incidents like these cost innocent lives, reckless driving and driving under intoxication is one of the leading causes of car accidents. At the angle which the car hit pedestrians clearly shows that the car was not in control of the driver. No additional information has been revealed by police yet, it is likely that all investigation proceedings will be kept confidential.

We sincerely hope that injured pedestrians are able to quickly make full recoveries.
