One dead after vehicle crashes into bus stops in Marseille

One killed as car hits pedestrians in French city

While police said the 35-year-old suspect had "psychological issues", ISIS supporters have taken to social media to celebrate this morning's events.

A man was injured at the first bus stop and the woman killed at the second, Reverdy said.

The two bus stops are about three miles apart in the northern part of Marseille, France's second-largest city.

The incident comes as police across Europe search for the driver of a van that mowed down pedestrians in Barcelona last week, killing 13.

The crashes happened in two different areas of the city. The incident is reminiscent of the terrorist attack in Barcelona on Thursday, but there are no indications that the attacks are connected.

The driver of the van in Marseille was arrested, France's BFM-TV reported.

Police sources said the driver, who is in his mid-30s, was a petty criminal with a history of stealing cars. The driver steered onto the curb to crash into the glass-sided bus shelter then sped away, one witness said.

This story is developing and we'll be adding details as they come. Catalonian police wrote on Twitter they had identified the driver, but did not name him.

The man was known to the police before for theft, drug trafficking and illegal possession of arms, according to police source.
