Moscow taxi collision injures eight people

A taxi has crashed into a crowd of World Cup fans in central Moscow, leaving eight people reportedly injured.

Another witness at the scene said of the taxi driver: "He was pulled out of the vehicle, he ran off but bystanders apprehended him".

Moscow Police said the driver likely lost control of the vehicle rather than deliberately steering his auto into pedestrians.

A witness said the driver got out of the auto, tried to run away but was caught by police, according to Reuters news agency. At least five emergency vehicles were at the scene, Moscow police said.

Moscow is one of the 11 Russian cities where World Cup games are being played.

The driver then fled, pursued by several passers-by. "He was shouting: "It wasn't me".

Moscow's traffic management authority said the taxi driver had a driver's licence issued in Kyrgyzstan, a mainly Muslim ex-Soviet republic.

The incident took place on Ilinka Street, about 200 meters (650 feet) from Red Square and Moscow's famous GUM shopping arcade.

Russian Federation is now hosting the World Cup, and promised "unprecedented" security measures in all cities hosting the games.
