6 hurt when man drives car into crowd in Mankato parking lot

Posted September 10

— Police say six people were hurt when a man deliberately drove his vehicle into a group of people in a parking lot of an apartment complex in Minnesota.

Authorities say the 21-year-old Montgomery, Minnesota, man then fled the scene in Mankato early Sunday before Blue Earth County sheriff's deputies arrested him.

Police commander Craig Frericks tells The Associated Press that the attack is not terrorism-related.

The man was booked into jail on preliminary charges of fourth-degree driving while under the influence and criminal vehicular operation.

The Mankato Free Press reports two of the victims were airlifted to Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester while two others were treated at Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato. No details of the other two people hurt were immediately available.
