French Pizzeria Crash Driver Under Influence Of Medication

The driver who crashed his car into a pizzeria near Paris earlier this week killing a girl and injuring 13 people, had consumed large quantities of medication before setting off.

The incident initially raised fears it was a new terror attack, coming just five days after a suspected extremist rammed a vehicle into a group of soldiers in Paris.

But investigators have ruled out a terror motive. They said the driver had allegedly tried to kill himself the day before by taking a large amount of medication.

The crash in the village of Sept-Sorts, 55 kilometres (34 miles) east of Paris, killed a girl aged around 12 years and left five other people seriously injured, including her three-year-old brother.
