Car drives into a crowd in Berlin, at least one dead

STORY: More than a dozen people were injured, police spokesperson Thilo Cablitz said at the scene. Some injuries were serious, he added.

"To reconstruct the event we are obviously looking if this was an intentional act or a traffic accident that might have occurred due to a medical emergency," Cablitz said, adding that the driver had been detained at the scene.

Blankets covered what appeared to be a body in a cordoned-off area guarded by police, Reuters images showed. A small, silver coloured Renault car was lodged inside a shop after smashing through a plate glass window.

The site, on a shopping street near a McDonald's restaurant, was cordoned off.
