Driver Took Sharp Turn, Rammed into Turkish Embassy - Witnesses
The driver of an Audi car, who ran into the Turkish Embassy in downtown Sofia, seems to have deliberately taken a sharp turn right into the diplomatic building, witnesses say.
"I heard a loud noise and ran out into the street to see what is happening. A policeman took out his pistol, went to the car and arrested the driver. The man had not suffered any injuries.”
After the apparent self-crash the car had actually come to a halt after being stopped by the heavy iron gates at the embassy entrance.
The incident occurred slightly after 1.30 pm on Thursday.
The driver is a Bulgarian citizen, aged 35. He has been arrested.
The Embassy is located on the busy boulevard "Vasil Levski", near the junction of "Graf Ignatiev" street and "Patriarch Evtimii” boulevard.
