Man held as car mounts Leicester pavement and injures four
A man has been arrested after a car mounted a pavement and hit a group of pedestrians, injuring four people.
One woman remains in hospital with serious injuries after the crash in Humberstone Gate, Leicester, shortly before 17:00 GMT on Tuesday.
Three men who were also injured have since been discharged from hospital.
Leicestershire Police said a 21-year-old man is being held in connection with the crash.
Witnesses reported seeing a car mount the kerb before ploughing into a group of people near a bus stop.
One man said a teenager was "launched into the door of a fast food shop" while a woman was "sent flying".
The car was then seen turning into busy Charles Street, before heading the wrong way down a side road.
A witness who did not want to be named said: "[A car] went on to the pavement coming at massive speed up Halford Street, a one way street."
A black Hyundai was later found abandoned in nearby Bishop Street and two men were spotted fleeing the scene.
