PARIS (Sputnik) – On Thursday night, a truck rammed into a large crowd that was celebrating Bastille Day in Nice. At least 80 people were killed and dozens of others were injured.

According to BFM TV, the truck travelled across a distance of about 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) smashing people.

The driver was shot dead by police. According to ID documents found inside the truck, he was a 31-year-old man who was a resident of Nice of Tunisian origin. It is unclear whether he had any accomplices.

Weapons and grenades were found inside of the truck, President of the Regional Council of Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Christian Estrosi said.

Anti-terrorism prosecutors are now investigating the attack.
