At least two people have been killed and 15 injured after a car drove at high speed into pedestrians in the German city of Trier, police say.

It’s strange that we will neverknow the motive..

The incident happened in a pedestrianised area of the city centre, Mayor Wolfram Leibe said.

The 51-year-old driver, who is from the area, has been arrested and the large hatchback vehicle involved seized. From the area.. I bet.

Officials have not established a motive behind the attack, which comes on the same day Germany went into its second coronavirus lockdown. I’m sure we all can make a pretty good guess.
