An Austrian lunatic drives into a crowd in Graz and kills three people, including a four-year-old boy. 36 individuals have also been injured, ten of them seriously and one critically. The driver, a 26-year-old male with Austrian citizenship and Bosnian roots has been apprehended. It is believed the man has personal family problems, but this incident has not been identified or linked to an attack of any terrorist nature.

The incident occurred when the aforementioned Austrian lunatic drove along inner city roads that were blocked off to cars for pedestrian-only access, and drove into the crowd that was gathered for events related to the Formula 1 Grand Prix; people were screaming, and three were killed. The vehicle was travelling 62 miles per hour. Four helicopters and sixty ambulances reported to the crime scene. Officials are officially claiming the man is mentally unbalanced, because he had no clear motive for the rampage. More news about the incident are still developing about the Austrian lunatic that purposefully drove into a crowd and killed three people.
