A driver who run into a group of people in the Polish seaside resort of Sopot Saturday midnight was arrested on Monday and charged with the intentional cause of a "land transport catastrophe" which left 23 people injured.

Three of the injured have severe injuries to the limbs and craniofacial parts, while others suffered minor injuries.

A honda car driven by a 32-years old unnamed man first entered the promenade, then run into the wooden pier and turned back. According to early reports by the police the man was sober, but presumably on drugs.

During the hearing the man admitted to the accusations, but refused to give an explanation for the incident, also declining to answer investigators’ cross-examinations, spokesman for the Sopot prosecution, Tomasz Landowski said.

The 32-year old man has been taken into custody for three months. If found guilty, he could face ten years in jail.
