The New York Post: Mexican fans believed to be among victims after taxi jumps curb in central Moscow

Eight people — including two from Mexico — were injured Saturday when a taxi driver plowed into a crowd of World Cup fans in Moscow.

Police said their initial investigation found the driver likely lost control of vehicle — and probably had not targeted the crowd.

The accident, which happened shortly after Iceland and Argentina finished playing to a 1-1 draw in Spartak Stadium, took place on tourist-packed Ilinka Street, about 650 feet from Red Square.

CCTV footage distributed on social media shows the driver —identified as a 28-year-old national of Kyrgyzstan — turning right as it passes traffic on a one way street, and then accelerating when he reaches the packed sidewalk, travelling a few more feet before hitting a traffic sign.
