Jerusalem (AP) Authorities say a Palestinian bulldozer driver plowed into a string of vehicles on a busy Jerusalem street today. Two people were killed and dozens wounded before the driver was shot dead by police.

Traffic was halted and hundreds of people fled through the streets in panic as medics treated the wounded. In a statement, police say a “terrorist” carried out the attack but give no further details.

One witness says he saw “a guy going crazy.”

At the scene of the attack, two cars were flattened and a third was overturned. One bus was overturned and another was heavily damaged.

Injured people sat dazed on the ground amid piles of broken glass and blood stains on the street. A baby had blood all over its face, and the driver of the bulldozer was slumped motionless over the steering wheel.
