12 Dead, 48 Wounded in Truck Crash at Berlin Christmas Market
Dec 20, 2016 12:18 AM(ET): A tractor trailer ploughed into a crowded Christmas market in central Berlin yesterday, killing 12 people and wounding 48 more. According to police sources, the truck had Polish license plates and a passenger found dead in the truck was Polish citizen. Police said that the nationality of the suspected driver, who fled the crash scene and held later, was not yet clear. While Germany’s interior minister has said that the crash looked like an attack, officials are investigating the incident as an act of terrorism. Berlin police have detained a man on foot about a mile from the crash site following a tip-off. Authorities are working to determine if he is linked to the case.
