Berlin: Teacher dead and pupils hurt as car hits crowd

BBC News says A teacher was killed and 14 schoolchildren were injured after a car hit a crowd on a busy street in the German capital, Berlin.

The group was on a school trip to Berlin from the state of Hesse. A second teacher was seriously hurt.

Police say the driver, a 29-year-old man, was arrested at the scene.

Berlin Interior Affairs Minister Iris Spranger said evidence suggested the driver was a “mentally ill person running amok”.

The incident occurred shortly before 10:30 (08:30 GMT) in the heart of western Berlin, on one of its busiest shopping streets.

The woman who died has been identified as a schoolteacher who was on a trip with a class of teenagers from the central state of Hesse. Berlin police say she died on the spot.
