Thick smoke could be seen coming from the building, as police urged people to evacuate the area. Brewery company Spendrups said the lorry used in the attack had been stolen earlier in the day while the driver was unloading at a restaurant.According to local reports, one eye witness in the shopping mall said she saw “hundreds of people” running for their lives. Another witness described the panic, saying: “I went to the main street when a big truck came out of nowhere. I could not see if anyone was driving it but it got out of control. I saw at least two being run over. I ran as fast as I could from there.”
