A Greek father and his nine-month-old child are reportedly among the five people who died when a man plowed his car into a group of people in a pedestrian zone in the southwest German city of Trier on Tuesday.

According to orthodoxia.info, the car hit the family – members of the Greek Orthodox community – who had gone for a walk.

As a result, the 45-year-old father and baby girl were killed, while his wife and their other child were injured.

Officers arrested the driver of the car, a 51-year-old German national. He was being questioned by police and will be prosecuted for murder and manslaughter, police said.

The chief public prosecutor said the driver was “severely intoxicated” — with a blood alcohol level of 1.4 — and there are “indications of psychological illness.”

Trier police said the motive was unknown, that the suspect has no police record and his background shows an indication of political motivation.
