An erratic driver who narrowly missed striking a number of pedestrians by Jerusalem’s Central Bus Station Monday evening is being questioned by police. According to spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, police received several emergency phone calls at approximately 5 p.m. when the unidentified driver weaved in and out of traffic, nearly colliding with at least four people.

While details of the incident remain unclear as the suspect continues to be questioned, Rosenfeld said possible terrorist activity has been ruled out. “The driver was stopped and it was clear that it was a criminal-related incident and not a terrorist attack,” he said. “The suspect is still being questioned and an arrest has not been made yet,” he added.
