A woman and her three children were killed when a car plowed into a crowd in the central Turkish city of Konya, killing at least one person, the authorities said on Sunday.
“A car went into a group of people on the sidewalk and crashed into a building, killing a woman and two children,” the Turkish Transport Ministry said in a statement.
The vehicle was a red and white vehicle.
The driver of the car was arrested and a probe was underway, it said.
It said the family was members of the family of a woman who had died in January in a car accident.
The woman’s daughter and her husband had been on holiday with relatives in Konyas capital, Adana, when the accident happened, it added.
The state-run Anadolu Agency quoted the deputy prime minister as saying the three were among more than 200 people who were injured in the incident.
The head of Karkamis state council, Dusan Şahin, said a total of 12 people had been killed in the crash.
It was not immediately clear whether the woman was in the car.
The number of casualties is likely to rise as a search operation continues in the area, police and medical officials said.
