Driver hits school group in Berlin; 1 dead, 9 badly hurt
BERLIN (AP) — Authorities say a man drove a car into a German school group in a Berlin shopping district, killing a teacher and seriously injuring nine people.
Police said the man drove into people on a street corner about 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, got the car back on the road and then crashed it into a shop window nearby.
He was immediately detained.
Police said the driver was a 29-year-old German-Armenian who lives in Berlin.
The city’s top security official indicated later that authorities believe it was a deliberate act by a “psychologically impaired person.”
