AT least three people have been injured after a car mounted a pavement and ploughed into pedestrians in Spain. 

A manhunt is underway for the driver after he fled the scene in Casetas, Zaragoza, at around 9.20am.

A 45-year-old and a married older couple are among the injured and have been transferred to hospital, according to local press.

People who saw the crash said the car was driving up to 40mph and that the incident caused a panic in the small town.

Local sources claim two other people in the car were detained shortly afterwards.

It came just hours after a suspected terrorist was shot dead after he entered a police station in Cornella, near Barcelona, just before 6.00am ‘to attack the officers.’

Police sources said the man, a 29-year-old Algerian who lived in the area, had shouted ‘Allahu akbar’ as he entered the station.

Police confirmed they were treating the incident as terror-related.
