Marseille: At least one person was killed and another injured in Marseille on Monday when a car crashed into two bus shelters in different parts of the French city, police said.

Police advised the public to avoid the Old Port area where the driver, a 35-year-old man, was arrested.

“At the moment we have no information on the motives of this individual,” a police official told Reuters.

The driver first hit a bus shelter around 8:15am (0615 GMT) in the 13th arrondissement—or district—in the poorer northern part of the city, before hitting a second bus shelter an hour later in the 11th arrondissement, several kilometres (miles) south.

The incident comes as Spanish police hunt for the 22-year-old driver who ploughed a van into a crowd in Barcelona on Thursday. Reuters
