Person arrested after van strikes cars in Stockholm, injuring 1 (PHOTOS)
Swedish police have arrested a person suspected of driving a van into a number of vehicles before injuring one person during a suspected “attempted murder” in Stockholm.

The incident occurred on Tuesday in the Södermalm area of Stockholm, close to the Royal Palace.

According to police, the van driver struck taxis on Götgatan before continuing down the street. The vehicle was then left abandoned on Bondegatan.

One person was injured in the collision, although the extent of their injuries is not yet known.

An attempted-murder investigation has been launched, Swedish investigators said in a statement.

Police spokesperson Anders Bryngelsson said investigators are working to determine whether the driver intended to cause harm with the vehicle.

The van involved in the collision is reportedly part of fleet belonging to courier firm Tjuvgods.se.

The company says they offer employment opportunities to former prison inmates.
