A truck has ploughed into several cars in the centre of the German city of Limburg injuring at least 17 people.
The truck was reportedly stolen earlier from a local train station, after the assailant forcefully dragged the driver from the vehicle, according to Frankfurter Neue Presse (FNP).
Soon after, the truck slammed into several cars waiting at a stop light near the main railway station of Limburg in Hesse state, “crushing them together”.
TheFNPreports the driver spoke Arabic and used the word “Allah” in his speech.
One person sustained heavy injuries and is in critical condition, according to the report.
The attack left at least eight vehicles damaged, with some people jammed inside their cars due to sheer force of the impact, police said.
The driver was also slightly injured and has been detained.
Police would not rule out terror as a motive for the attack.
