“Confused” statements by the Berlin driver are being investigated

BERLIN – Investigators are trying to understand the “confused” statements of a man who appears to have driven into a school group on purpose in Berlin, the city’s mayor said on Thursday.

Wednesdays incident A woman, a teacher from the school group from Central Germany and six people were critically injured on a popular shopping street in the center of the capital. Three others were seriously injured.

The driver, a 29-year-old German-Armenian living in Berlin, was quickly arrested after his car stalled in a shop window. Berlin Mayor Franziska Giffey said the authorities had determined on Wednesday evening that it was an “amocact of a really severely mentally impaired person”.

She told public broadcaster RBB Inforadio that investigators were working to establish the context and what else influenced it. They “also try to get more out of the sometimes confused statements with the help of a language interpreter,” she added.

Berlin’s top security official Iris Spranger said on Wednesday that posters were found in the car “in which he expressed his views on Turkey”. But she said there was “no claim to responsibility”.

Giffey said authorities do not yet know if the posters have any connection to Wednesday’s incident.

The car drove into pedestrians near the site of a 2016 attack in which an Islamic extremist drove a confiscated truck into a confiscated truck Christmas Market, resulting in 13 deaths. Giffey said Wednesday’s crash “reopens deep wounds and trauma” associated with the event.
