Two Mexican nationals, who had come to Russian Federation for the World Cup, were among the injured in the incident. The authority cited the driver, who was in police custody, as saying he had not driven into the crowd on objective. Authorities say the driver lost control of the vehicle.

Sources say the driver pleaded with people at the scene, claiming he did not mean to hit the football fans. At least five emergency vehicles were at the scene, Moscow police said. Mexico kick-off their campaign at Moscow's Luzhniki stadium and thousands of their fans are in the Russian capital. "He was shouting: "It wasn't me".
