1 killed in France as car crashes into bus shelters

One killed after car hits people Marseille bus stop in France driver arrested

One person has been confirmed dead in Marseille after a auto crashed into people waiting at two different bus stops in the southern French port, police sources told French media.

This footage shows the scene after police erected a cordon following the incident.

While police said the 35-year-old suspect had "psychological issues", ISIS supporters have taken to social media to celebrate this morning's events.

Reports say the driver of the van has been arrested.

A police source told Reuters it is not clear if the crash was an accident or deliberate.


The driver was known to authorities for "acts of minor delinquency" and appears to have a "psychiatric history", the police told CNN. A man was injured at the first location.

Officers believe the same vehicle hit two separate bus stops.

"We heard a loud noise, like a vehicle accident, and we came to figure out what happened", Nicolas Negre, 32, an employee at a nearby fast food restaurant, said. The suspect was purportedly captured in the Old Port territory, in the core of Marseille.

"This will be for the detectives to establish in interviewing the driver to understand his motives".
