BREAKING NEWS: Driver hits several people at Marbella cafe
Police and health workers have been spotted at the scene on Avenida Miguel Cano in Marbella after the driver allegedly hit several customers after his car mounted the pavement.
Reports said 10 people have been transferred to the Costa del Sol Hospital, with one seriously injured.
Health workers, the Local Police and the National Police, as well as the City Council Firefighters, have attended.
According to reports, the car rammed into people walking along the road.
The National Police has confirmed that inquiries are being made “to try to clarify the causes of the crash with several wounded.” They have ruled out the terrorist nature of the incident.
The driver is reportedly a 30-year-old Spanish man who was travelling in the car with his parents and was taken by police for alcohol and drug tests where he tested negative.
According to sources, when he stopped the car, the young man put his hands out of the window, pushing away passers-by, apparently hitting a policeman, before being reduced by six officers who took him away.
