FIFA World Cup fans injured after Moscow taxi crashes into crowd

A possibly drunk taxi driver crashed into a crowd of World Cup fans Saturday in Moscow, injuring at least seven people. The city's mayor, Sergei Sobyanin, earlier said on Twitter that the driver "failed to maintain control". Police said the driver in the crash was detained, but other Russian authorities said he had stated the crash was accidental.

Witnesses say a number of the injured were wearing the Mexican football team's colors.

Moscow's traffic monitoring agency said the driver claimed the crash wasn't premeditated.

Witnesses say the man was shouting "it wasn't me" when he was being pulled out of the vehicle before running away.

The driver has been arrested after reportedly trying to flee the scene.
