This is the horrific moment a taxi driver rammed his vehicle through a busy crowd of football fans just yards from Moscow’s Red Square.
Eight people were injured in the collision but it appears as that many more were hit by the vehicle.
Two Mexicans, two Russians and one Ukrainian were hospitalised in the crash.
At least one person hit was wearing a Mexico kit, with the North American nation due to kick-off their World Cup campaign against Germany in Moscow’s Luzhniki stadium tomorrow.
Moscow police said the driver had a Kyrgyzstan driving licence and lost control of the vehicle.
Video footage shows the driver mounting the pavement and hitting around a dozen people.
The driver then tried to escape on foot and he is followed by an angry mob who were intent on trying to apprehend him.
