An EU news source now reporting the driver committed suicide.

Police reported several “dead and injured” and warned the situation is still “unclear.” The perpetrator committed suicide, police confirmed.

Several dead after van mows into crowd in Münster: reports

So, if it was an accident, how/why did the driver kill themselves? It's shaping up to lean more toward being a terror attack IMO.


UPDATE:
From a German news source:

Der Mann, der in Münster in eine Menschenmenge gefahren ist, ist nach Angaben der Polizei tot. Er habe sich selbst umgebracht, bestätigte die Polizei am Samstag. Bei dem Vorfall in der Innenstadt gab es laut Polizei Tote und Verletzte.

Using Google Translate:
According to the police, the man who drove into a crowd in Münster is dead. He killed himself, the police confirmed on Saturday. In the incident in the city center there were according to police dead and injured.

Täter von Münster ist tot




going to check twitter see what people on the ground are saying there

Only assault vans, no one wants to take your right of a car away, just have some common sense laws.

Think of the children

Ban trucks....and cars...ah hell, ban everything.


is it possible for those of you who feel the need to inject this kind of mindless drivel in every post on the planet to just not do it?


It's valid, is it not?

Or does the fact that a crazy person can kill people without a gun, bother you?

If you take guns, crazy people will find a way, like this guy did.

So ban trucks, and cars, and mopeds, right?

P.s
You know how easy it is for a person to get a car in America?
Background checks now!
Oh wait, there's Cali with driver licenses for illegals, nah, no worries, what could go wrong?

I´ve heard over the radio that there is a bag inside the truck. Police thinks it could be a hot IED or similar.

Sorry if this has been posted, just heard it over the local radio and saw the thread.

Wow, how anyone can do that to fellow humans never ceases to shock me.


That was my thinking as well. What make a human to do something like this? Terrible situation for everyone involved. Sadly we have seen this type of thing becoming a regular way of causing harm to others.
The world is a scary place to be right now.

They will likely stop when people stop being obtuse to the point being made.

According to the BBC police have said the suspect package in the van is no longer being treated as suspicious.

Meaning an inanimate object that rely' s on the action of man to come alive can't be the problem.

Unless today's reality consist of some Maximum Overdrive type ish I would have to agree.

This has more the potential to be Stockholm syndrome if you catch my drift.

Some video in German,


police have been saying that as yet, they can't rule out that this isn't a terrorist incident?

Sadly with soo many views from the world and controlled perspective an adequate solution is not in the cards. Sending condolences and picking up the pieces is our only path in these constraints. Imo

I guess we can thank God these crazies, if that is the case, don't actually plan it out better. A van into a huge crowd could kill/injure 100s...

I believe he meant he had a minor heart attack because his pregnant wife was down town. But in a different city.
Maybe I got it all wrong though.
Shrugs.
