A spokesman for Sweden‘s police service said children “threw themselves” out of the way of the car, which appeared to have aimed directly for the group of 100 people.
He said: “The car accelerated into the group of students and teachers.

“The car increased speed and drove straight towards them.

“He drove into two of the students. One was injured on the wrist and possibly the other student was also injured.

Police have today appealed for any information on the horrifying incident, which took place at 1pm local time (12pm BST) yesterday.

The group was made up of 100 children and 10 teachers from Mjallby secondary school.

They were walking from Hinnedalsvagen to Grundsjon as part of a social event.

The car was described as a black or dark blue Saab. It was driving at around 25mph when it hit the crowd.
