Six people were slightly injured on Friday after a pickup truck drove into the garden of a cafe in central Brussels, local firefighting teams and the public prosecutor’s office said. Investigators are trying to determine whether this was an accident or a deliberate attack.

The white truck driver fled the scene around 1 p.m. local time. Brussels prosecutors said he was arrested in the late afternoon in the northern part of Antwerp. Earlier, the suspect’s car was found abandoned near Brussels.

“The facts, of course, make you think about previous attacks, but that is not the only option we are considering. It is likely that it was just an accident,” a spokesman for the Brussels Public Prosecutor’s Office said.

None of the six people with minor injuries required hospitalization.

The motive of the culprit is still being determined, but eyewitnesses to the accident told Belgian media that the truck screamed on Rue Saint-Michel, which houses a café and leads to the busy shopping alley on Rue Neuve, and appeared to be targeting a café, and then drove off at high speed.

The recording of the incident shows how the white van travels quickly and dynamically, but it only rubs against part of the café’s garden and it is not clear that it is targeting the guests.
