World Car News #update

In an unfortunate incident that happened yesterday, a car drove into a crowd at the Rio Copacabana beach resulting in a high number of casualties. The promenade which is frequented by both Rio’s natives and visitors especially for its annual carnivals is one that has seen terrorist attacks in various forms which is why the car crash that happened yesterday is suspected to be one of those.

The driver tried racing away after the incident but was caught by the police who immediately gave a chase. When questioned, he mentioned that he was having an epileptic fit and true to his words, drugs for the ailment were found in his car.

The victims that were scattered all over the ground were being given emergency treatment already but an eight month old baby already lost its life in the accident. A police official was quoted saying the accident was not a terrorist attack but investigations are still ongoing.
