Germany car attack – Two dead & 15 injured in Trier as car ploughs into pedestrians.

TWO people have been killed and at least 15 injured after a car rampage left a "trail of destruction" through a German city centre.

Witnesses told how they saw families and a pram "flying through the air" as a Range Rover ploughed through a pedestrian zone in Trier.

Other victims were mowed down in front of terrified children who were out Christmas shopping with their parents.

The driver left a trail of carnage in his wake as schools in the city centre were placed in lockdown and children told to stay inside the buildings.

German officers reportedly pinned a suspect to floor behind a Range Rover after apparently ramming the car with their own vehicle.

Cops said several people had been killed, having earlier put the death toll at two, and a 51-year-old suspect from the Trier area was being questioned.

"We have a driver who ran amok in the city. We have two dead that we are certain of and up to 15 injured, some of them with the most severe injuries," Mayor Wolfram Leibe Leibe told SWR.

"I just walked through the city centre and it was just horrible. There is a trainer lying on the ground, and the girl it belongs to is dead," he told a news conference, with tears stopping him from speaking further.

Leibe said he did not know the motive for the incident.

Uwe Konz, head of the Trier police press office, told BILD: "After driving through the pedestrian zone, several people were injured. Doctors are currently on site.
