Flinders Street pedestrians run over

POLICE are chasing a rogue car which has driven erratically through the Melbourne CBD.

Ambulance Victoria confirmed paramedics had reports multiple people had been hit by a car.

Paramedics are still unsure how many pedestrians had been hit.

A number of unmarked Police cars and a police helicopter have been deployed in the chase.

Emergency services were flooded with calls about 1.30pm.

One witness said some of those at the scene were in tears at what had unfolded,

He said police were stopping people leaving the RACV Club.

That man said police a car was trying to escape police when the incident happened.

I am near there now at work, number of work colleagues came back from lunch with pics of it happening.

I hope it’s not terrorism!
Unfortunately it’s the first thing that comes to mind these days

Only if you have limited brain power.

Yeah my office is on the corner of bourke and william and we were under lockdown and can still see a few people injured on the street :(

Seen 4 Ambulances so far roll into Royal Melbourne and multiple police cars heading toward the city at a fair rate of knots.

Some news also running with ‘shots fired’.

F**k me there are a lot of selfish people in the world.

One person confirmed dead

2 more ambulances into Royal Melbourne from the city

Some news also running with 'shots fired'.

Yeah we heard what sounded like shots.

Seems the “One Dead” is the driver. Shot by Police, apparently was armed.

Some reports say driver arrested. Hopefully not the case if there’s one confirmed dead.

Sounds like a meth head crim (to me) … Bloke went spare in a car, doing burnouts o/side Flinders St Station, hanging out of the car yelling.

Our senator at work. What a f**kwit.

The car.is heavily damaged in that photo, if that damage is from hitting peope…fark
