t least four people have been killed after a car drove into a crowd at a carnival in Belgium.

More than 20 others were injured after the crash at 5am in the incident at Strépy-Bracquegnies near La Louvière in the province of Hainaut.

“A car drove from the back at high speed. And we have a few dozen injured and unfortunately several people who are killed,” La Louvière Mayor Jacques Gobert told RTBF radio.

Media reports said the crash may have been caused by a car chased by police.

Seven people are believed to have been seriously wounded, with at least 15 suffering minor injuries.

Mayor Jacques Gobert added: “There are no words for this, it is horrible.

“I arrived shortly after the disaster. Seeing those bodies scattered on the road, you can not imagine that something like this can happen here and yet it happened.”

Brussels-based radio station Bel RTL reported: “There were about 150 of us in a long, straight street.

“We heard an immense noise behind us and a car literally drove into the group of people. It was a scene that I never imagined.

“The car accelerated and by the time we realized something was up, everyone was on the ground. People were screaming, it was terrible.”

Belgian politician Annelies Verlinden tweeted: “Deepest condolences to the families and friends of those killed and injured in the incident this morning in Strépy.

“What was supposed to be a great party turned into a drama. We are monitoring the situation closely.”
