Woman killed as van rammed into bus shelter in France’s Marseille

French forensic police inspect the site following a car crash

A woman has been killed after a van struck a bus shelter in the southern French city of Marseille, police say.

The driver has been arrested. His vehicle had struck another bus shelter in a different district of the city earlier in the morning, seriously injuring one person.

French prosecutors say the case is not being treated as a terrorist incident.

French media reports say the driver is known to police and may have mental health issues.

The unconfirmed reports say he has a criminal record but is not known to the intelligence services.

The first bus stop was hit at about 09:15 (07:15 GMT) at Croix Rouge in the 13th district, where one person was seriously hurt.

The second bus stop was struck at about 10:00 at Valentine in the 11th district.

French media say the woman who died was in her 40s.
