Seven injured in Moscow after taxi crashes into pedestrians

In Moscow a taxi vehicle rammed into pedestrians injuring 8

A second witness at the scene told Reuters about the driver of the taxi: "He was pulled out of the vehicle, he ran off but bystanders apprehended him".

Police said the driver in the crash was detained, but other Russian authorities said he had stated the crash was accidental.

The driver, a citizen of Kyrgyzstan, said he did not act on objective, according to Moscow authorities.

Pictures on social media show a taxi with its front bumper completely ripped off, and several ambulances at the scene.

Mexico's embassy in Russian Federation said two of its citizens were among the injured.

He also is suspected of having had too much to drink, according to the Russian news agency Interfax.

The Moscow city government tweeted photographs of the yellow cab sustaining damage to its front bumper in the incident near the Kremlin and being towed away.

Witnesses said some of the victims were wearing the green football colours of Mexico ahead of the team's match against Germany in the city tomorrow.

Police said that it is likely the man lost control of the vehicle and he holds a Kyrgyzstan driving license.

Eight people have been injured after a taxi rammed through a crowd in Moscow. There are no fatalities but at least one woman has serious injuries although she is not believed to be critical, according to Interfax.

"We didn't expect something like this to happen in a place like this".
