At least one person died when a car crashed into a group of people waiting at a bus stop in Marseilles, report French police sources. 

Another person was left seriously injured.

It is unknown whether police forces are treating the incident as a terrorist attack or as an accident.

 Updates: French media sources have confirmed that the driver is known to police for minor crimes, and has psychological issues. 

A Marseille police official told PA it is too early to blame the incident on terrorism, but "given the times" it cannot be excluded as a motive.

Police have advised the public to avoid the Old Port area, where the incidents occured.
