Police, who had detained the driver, a 29-year-old German from Volkmarsen, said his motive was still unclear and investigations were ongoing.

A silver Mercedes vehicle was driven into the crowd during the Rose Monday carnival parade in Volkmarsen, a town with about 6,800 people, at 2:45 p.m. local time on Monday.

- A auto that rammed into a carnival procession in Volkmarsen on Rose Monday, February 24, 2020, injured 52 people, including 18 children, police said, adding that the perpetrator's motive remains unclear.

Hesse state premier Volker Bouffier said he was "shocked at the awful act" and urged the public not to jump to conclusions.

"It appears to have been an intentional act", a local police spokesman told reporters, but said the incident was not being classified as an attack until investigators had more information. Law enforcement officials also said that in connection with the incident, all carnivals in this region were canceled.

Hinn said that "there were several dozen injured, among them some seriously and sadly also children".

Some of the injuries were life-threatening, he said. Several dozen people are injured, now the number is around 30.

"I saw him drive off, he looked as if he was on drugs and he said, "soon I'll be in the papers", a neighbour of the suspect told German broadcaster RTL.

"It's awful. I don't know how somebody could do this, especially to children", said Rainer Bellmann, a 58-year-old local resident. Police said the incident occurred at about 14:45 local time (13:45 GMT).

Condemning the violence in Hanau, Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany had to fight back against the "poison" of racism and hatred running through German society.

The incident comes less than a week after a man shot dead nine people before killing his mother and himself, in one of the worst racist attacks in Germany since World War Two.

Rose Monday is the top of the carnival year in Catholic areas of Germany, primarily in the Rhineland where tens of hundreds of men and women dress up, drink alcohol and line the streets to enjoy parades and satirical floats.

Police arrested the driver at the scene.
