A car smashed into a crowd of people at a busy shopping district in Berlin Germany Wednesday, June 8. A teacher was killed and 14 students on a field trip were injured. The car veered onto the pavement at a street corner twice at around 10:30 in the morning. The car later came to a stop after crashing into a store window a block away.
The car’s driver was detained by bystanders until police were able to arrive and arrest him. The driver was a 29-year-old German-Armenian living in Berlin. Police said they were investigating all avenues of cause and had found materials in the car expressing “views about Turkey.”
“We can’t rule anything out…but there is no claim of responsibility,” said Iris Spranger, Berlin’s top security official
