Police in Germany say several people have been injured after a car drove into a crowd at a Carnival procession.
Unconfirmed reports spoke of 10 to 15 injured, including children.
Northern Hesse police said a large number of police are at the scene in Volkmarsen, about 280 kilometers (175 miles) southwest of Berlin, and the driver was arrested.
Police said they couldn’t immediately provide further details and urged people not to spread “unconfirmed reports” about the incident, which happened early Monday afternoon.
Police say they have not received any reports of any deaths, and don’t have a specific number of injuries yet.
They say it is too early to say what caused the car to crash into the crowd.
The regional Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper reported that witnesses said the driver drove around a barrier blocking off traffic from the parade, but that it wasn’t yet clear whether he intentionally headed toward the crowd.
