Terrorism is suspected in a Monday evening attack on a Berlin Christmas Market. Bearing a striking similarity to the July attack in Nice, France, a truck was used to drive through a celebrating crowd, leaving 12 dead and scores wounded.

A tractor trailer barreled into a crowded Christmas market in Berlin on Monday night, killing 12 people and injuring 48 others. Witnesses said shoppers screamed and dropped packages and glasses of mulled wine as the truck plowed into the market.

Officials are investigating the crash as an act of terrorism, according to a German intelligence official familiar with the matter.
After a tip, Berlin police arrested a man on foot about a mile and a half away from the crash site. Authorities are working to determine whether he is linked to the case.
Nice, Ohio State, Berlin. I fear these are just the tip of the iceberg. There will never be “common-sense car-control”. Better to focus on the individual operating said car.
