A truck crashed into a crowd of revelers Thursday night during a Bastille Day celebration in France, killing more than 10 people, according to reports.
Social media images showed videos of people running from the scene in Nice, though reports of mass fatalities and gunfire after the crash could not be immediately confirmed.
The cargo truck plowed into a gathering at the Promenade des Anglais just after a fireworks display around 10:30 local time, local newspaper Nice Matin reported. Photos published by the newspaper at the scene showed a white truck with bullet holes in its windshield surrounded by armored police officers.
“Movement of panic!!” one Twitter user wrote above a video of people moving quickly through the streets. Other pictures appeared to show dead bodies in the street.
Bastille Day commemorates the storming of a prison during the French Revolution in 1789. Nice is the capital city of the French Riviera on France’s southern coast.
