    A VAN in Barcelona, holds the driver as a prisoner, an unwilling Driver, forced to take out two and injure 20.
    ================================================== So that said.

    Horror in Barcelona as van 'ploughs into crowd of pedestrians' on famous Las Ramblas street leaving 'two dead and 20 injured'

    At least 20 people were injured when a van ploughed into pedestrians along a famous promenade in central Barcelona, as police are now hunting the driver.

    There were unconfirmed reports that two people were killed.

    Photos posted online show victims being helped by police officers and witnesses at Placa de Catalunya in the city centre.

    Video
    shows a stampede as terrified witnesses flee through the streets after the vehicle slammed into people on tree-lined La Rambla, which is highly popular with tourists.

    Local media reported that the driver of the white van fled on foot and is being hunted by police.

    Locals officials have requested that metro and train stations shut while rescuers deal with the emergency, and they urged people to stay away from the crash site.

    btw..
    "Local media reported that the driver of the white van fled on foot and is being hunted by police"

    Based on DOPer explanation on Charlottesville driver.
    This guy on foot is just misunderstood here. He was just a
    passenger and is now running around to find help.
    Or a landline to call for help? :dunno:
