Ammon News - A speeding car has smashed into a crowd of people leaving 17 injured including three children in Poland.

The driver ploughed into the group before speeding away and continuing to cause chaos, say reports.

Two of those hit in the horror crash in Szczecin, Poland are in a serious but stable condition, according to Poland-24.com.

At least seven others are thought to be in hospital.

The car veered off the road at around 3pm at high speed before smashing into people on a pedestrian crossing, local media reports.

The driver has been identified as a 33-year-old man and is thought to have been finally stopped by the public, reports say.

Pictures show smashed up vehicles by the side of the road after the erratic driver ploughed into them, leaving them crumpled into each other.

The man reportedly went on to hit several more motors before crashing into a bus stop in front of horrified witnesses.

The 33-year-old was then apparently detained by shocked onlookers and handed over to the police, according to local media.

Chilling pictures of the busy Polish street shows several injured people laying stricken on the ground by the tram stop.

People were seen rushing to help the injured before medics arrived on the scene.

Provincial governor Adam Rudawski told reporters: "We have an incident here with currently 17 people injured, including three minors and two in critical condition.

"The person who caused the accident has been detained."

As police spokesman for the area Pawel Pankau added: "This was not a terrorist act."
