A car has ploughed through a pedestrian area in the western German city of Trier, killing five people including a nine-week-old baby girl.

Witnesses said people screamed in panic and some were thrown in the air by an SUV travelling at high speed in Trier’s Brotstrasse and Simeonstrasse streets towards the city’s famous Roman gate, the Porta Nigra.

Trier police spokesman Karl-Peter Jochem said the incident happened at around 13:45 local time (12:45 GMT), and the suspect drove for 1km (0.62 miles) “hitting people at random on his way” before being stopped by a police car.

The victims were three women, aged 25, 52 and 73.
Police said the 45-year-old father of the baby was also killed. His wife and one-year-old son were injured and admitted to hospital.

The driver, a 51-year-old local man, has been arrested.
