Berlin A vehicle rammed into pedestrians in Berlin on Wednesday, killing at least one person and injuring eight others, rescue services said. Berlin fire service spokesman Stefan Salzwedel, who confirmed the victims to The Associated Press, could not immediately provide more information about the victims.

Berlin police spokesman Martin Dams said the incident took place near the popular Kurf├╝rstendamm shopping boulevard in the west of the German capital.

He said the suspected driver of the vehicle was arrested. It was unclear whether the crash was the result of an accident or whether the driver had deliberately run into the crowd, Dams said.

It happened near Breitscheidplatz, or Breitscheid Square, where an extremist carried out an attack vehicle attack on a christmas market in 2016, resulting in 13 deaths.
