At least one person has died after a vehicle rams into two bus stops in Marseille

A press official for police headquarters in Marseille said the suspect, who has not been identified by name, is 35 years old and from the Grenoble region in eastern France. A Marseille police official earlier confirmed reports that a van rammed two bus stops in two different neighborhoods of the Mediterranean port city, killing a woman and injuring another person. David-Olivier Reverdy of the Alliance police union said the driver of the Renault Master van was arrested in the scenic Old Port neighborhood Monday morning. He said that it is too early to blame the incident on terrorism, but "given the times" it cannot be excluded as a motive. He says all possibilities are currently being studied. One person was hospitalized after the driver rammed the first bus stop. A woman was killed after he rammed the second bus stop in front of a KFC restaurant. The two bus stops in northern Marseille are about 5 kilometers (3 miles) apart. Marseille is France's second largest city.
