VOLKMARSEN, Germany (AP) — Police in Germany say several people have been injured after a car drove into a crowd at a Carnival procession.

Northern Hesse police said a large number of police are at the scene in Volkmarsen, about 175 miles southwest of Berlin, and the driver was arrested.

Police said they couldn't immediately provide further details and urged people not to spread “unconfirmed reports" about the incident, which happened early Monday afternoon.

Police say they have not received any reports of any deaths, and don't have a specific number of injuries yet.

They say it is too early to say what caused the car to crash into the crowd.
