    Earlier on Tuesday, a driver in Istanbul suddenly drove his car onto a sidewalk, speeding up and down chaotically in an attempt to knock down pedestrians, fleeing after hitting several people.

    Turkish police have detained a man who managed to hit several people with his car, leaving five injured, the NTV broadcaster reported on Tuesday.

    According to witnesses, the driver was initially quarreling with a woman and went berserk after a few passersby attempted to calm him down, with the driver trying to ram his vehicle through the crowd of pedestrians.
