The driver, said to be of Moroccan descent, used a rental car in an attempt to run people over on one sidewalk then on the other before he escaped.
According to witness reports, a stranger in Berlin-Reinickendorf is said to have rattled a car onto a group of people. The headquarters of the Berlin Ministry of the Interior confirmed that there was an incident at Wilhelmsruher Damm during the night on Saturday. At first, however, they spoke of a “traffic accident flight with special circumstances”.
According to the witness, the man of Moroccan descent drove onto the sidewalk and rammed a scooter parked there. Passers-by could only save themselves by jumping. Then the driver turned and drove over the sidewalk on the opposite side of the lane. According to police, he then escaped. Whether the alleged perpetrator could be caught, the authority did not say.
