Auto plows into crowd near Toulouse

Car crashes into students in France

Three people have been injured after a man ploughed a auto into a group of students near the south-western French city of Toulouse.

The suspect, a 28-year-old known to the police for minor offenses, was arrested at the scene and taken for questioning. The man was arrested on the spot.

French authorities say Friday's incident does not appear to be terror related, but believe the act may have been deliberate.

BFM television reports that the three people hurt are Chinese students and none of their injuries are considered life-threatening.

One police source told the French news agency the driver "deliberately" tried to ram the students with his vehicle, one of whom is in serious condition.


French media said the driver spent time in a psychiatric hospital and has a history of acute schizophrenia and drug use.

Two of the injured are in a serious condition.

Toulouse prosecutor Pierre-Yves Couilleau, said his office had opened an attempted murder investigation "because the driver was planning to mow people down".

The man told police that he "deliberately" drove into the crowd and that he suffered from psychological disorders, according to the report. These are Chinese students.
