Man Arrested After Car-Ramming at Lyon Airport

2018-09-10 16:57
Pursued by police vehicles, a man smashed his car into security barriers at two airports in Lyon, southeast France on Sept. 10, and then crashed through two glass doors of a busy terminal and sped onto the runway, before being arrested. In scenes captured on amateur video, the car was seen hitting a bump, then going airborne and landing in a cloud of dust at Lyon's international Saint-Exupery airport. The driver then jumped out while the vehicle was still rolling and sprinted off on foot, pursued by a police van. Other police vehicles and officers on foot then tried to cut off his escape until one of them managed to catch up with the suspect and wrestle him to the ground, the video showed. The man's motives were unknown and nothing was being ruled out, regional government press officer Christelle Monteagudo said.
