It seems Europe can’t catch a break. Tourists spending a casual day along Paris’ famous Champs-Elysees witnessed in horror as a car violently plowed into a Police Van.
Onlookers claim that the police grabbed the man after he deliberately plowed into their van; subsequently, the car burst into flames. The man is reported to have died.
Witness, Eugenio Morcilla, captured the video after the collision. “We were waiting to cross the street and suddenly heard an explosion and the car was in flames… The police acted very quickly.
According to CNN, the Paris prosecutor’s office has opened a series of anti-terrorism investigations in light of the numerous attacks that have hit the capital this year.
It is also reported that the suspect was under “Fiche S” file, which is a French terror watch list. This list has thousands of names that are under active surveillance. Police are still investigating the attack.
Fortunately, no members of the Paris public or officers were harmed in this attack.
