Man crashes car into Romanian shopping mall, injuring 7 – police

A Romanian man crashed his car into the front doors of a shopping mall in the Danube river city of Braila on Sunday, injuring seven people including two children, police said.

The 20-year-old man from Braila was immobilised by shoppers and arrested within minutes by the local police. The mall’s entrance lies on a pedestrian alleyway.

All the injured have been admitted to the hospital, with one in severe condition, police said.

“He tested so far positive for alcohol, 0.37 miligrammes per litre. We are testing him as well for banned substances,” Laura Dan, spokeswoman for the Braila county police told Reuters by telephone.

Dan said that prior to the shopping mall incident, the man stabbed a villager from a nearby locality after the two had argued over a car deal and consequently he injured another two people on the city’s ring road on his way to Braila.
