An official close to the investigation said the man was hospitalized and police investigators were unable to question him immediately or to verify reports he was heard at the scene shouting "Allahu akbar", Arabic for "God is great".

However his white Peugeot ran into barriers set up for a popular weekend festival featuring bull-fighting which attracts thousands of people each year.

Police in southern France held a man on suspicion of attempted murder Friday after he allegedly steered his vehicle toward a crowd, lightly injuring two people.

According to eyewitnesses, the driver shouted "Allah Akbar".

The Philippines tends to get hit almost every year, the Carolinas far less frequently though with lots of close calls, Maue said. Holt, who has diabetes and clogged arteries, said she stayed for doctor's appointments that were canceled at the last minute.

Local prosecutors said that the man was suffering from "relative mental confusion" and had been taken to hospital. French authorities did not elaborate on whether the incident is linked to terrorism. The latest occurred on Monday when a man plowed his vehicle into the glass doors and drove onto a runway at the Lyon worldwide airport, temporary halting air traffic.

An attemped murder probe has been launched by local cops, but police have stated the man was not known for Islamist radicalisation. Investigation into the case is ongoing.
