At least three killed in Austria after man drives into crowd before 'stabbing passers-by' in Graz

A seven-year-old boy is reportedly among the three people killed in Austria by a man who ploughed his car into crowds in the country’s second-largest city and then reportedly started stabbing people.

A witness told the Wiener Zeitung newspaper that dead bodies were left lying face down in the road after the vehicle sped through streets near the the historical Herrengasse in Graz.

The killing only stopped when the driver parked his battered car outside a police station.

More than 30 pedestrians, including three children, were hurt at several locations during the rampage and 10 victims were in hospital with serious injuries. One patient was in a critical condition on Saturday afternoon.

The driver, identified by police as a 26-year-old Austrian man of Bosnian heritage, has been arrested. He works as a professional driver and is married with two children.

Police are not currently investigating terrorism as a motive and the suspect is believed to be suffering from mental illness.

Witnesses recounted how the man drove his vehicle into crowds apparently at random, sending pedestrians and cyclists crashing into the windscreen and rolling over the bonnet.

Dr Sea Rotmann, who was nearby, told Sky News: "I had a friend who was there and she saw people flying through the air. She saw bodies lying there, it was absolute chaos and mayhem.

"Apparently the guy was attacking two elderly people with a knife and then attacking police with a knife when he got out."

Police said the stabbing happened outside a grocery shop, where a man was seriously injured and a woman wounded less severely.

The incident started at around 12.15pm local time (11.15am BST), sending screaming shoppers running into shops for safety.

Nobody does it like the US!

The boy who was killed was four.

The guy who did it drove into a few random people first, amongst them the mayor of Graz, then stabbed an afghan couple (maybe thinking they were turkish), killing the husband, then kept going, hit a few more people along the way and only at the end of his 10 mins drive of wreaking havoc did he drive into a crowd - where he killed the little boy and a young woman. Hauptplatz is a pedestrian area, with lots of outdoor seating at cafes and stuff, noone expects a car to show up out of nowhere at over 50 miles an hour. Then he turned himself in at the nearby police station.

The entire downtown was locked down.

Apparently - or so they say - he was sent away from his family (wife and kids) because of domestic violence. When the ban was over and he was able to go home his family had moved to Bosnia in the meantime and he went totally crazy on top of having a mental issue to start with. He came to AUT as a traumatized child refugee at 4 years old and suffers from a persecution complex, thinking the turkish people are after him. He was a used-car-dealer and truck driver.

None of this is to justify what he did. It is a horrible thing to have happend and it happend in my city. It made me want to throw up.

Maybe he should have driven off a bridge into the river instead of all these innocent people.

They *say* it was the act of a psychotic person, but who can really say what was going on.

Despite all the cars in Austria, they have fewer homicide victims in a year than the US has in a single weekend. Besides serving a legitimate primary purpose, perhaps cars really aren't the problem when it comes to people being intentionally killed...

The same thing with guns . .. They are not really the problem . Guns serve a legitimate purpose also .

Instead of fewer guns you mean?

It just goes to show that if someone sets their mind to killing people they will find a way. It is horrible :-(

The problem with cars is the person behind the wheel, kinda like with guns, the problem is the person behind the trigger. Inanimate objects seldom cause problems without human interaction. Go figure.
