A vehicle ploughed into a crowd on Rio de Janeiro's tourist-packed Copacabana seaside promenade on Thursday, killing a baby and injuring 17 people, authorities said, with the driver telling investigators he suffered a seizure.

The Twitter account of Brazil's military police force says the driver in Thursday night's incident has been taken into custody.

Fifteen people were injured - including children - after a vehicle crashed into pedestrians along a beach walk in Brazil, local authorities told ABC News.

The auto stopped in the sand after it crossed the wide path that runs between the beach and a busy road.

Confronting videos are beginning to emerge online showing people lying on the ground.

Mesut Ozil was also missing because of injury and Arsenal's lineup looked a shadow of the past teams under Wenger. However, manager Arsene Wenger said before the game that a decision on his future was "imminent".

According to local media reports, the cause of the incident was the alleged epilepsy of the driver. Local journalists reported that he is undergoing blood alcohol tests.

"We got there in time to keep him from being lynched", Angelotti said, adding, that the driver was "immediately" taken to a police station to give a statement.

According to RT, authorities reportedly found anti-epilepsy medication inside the auto.

The driver reportedly tried to escape but was then arrested by the police. Up to 11 people were injured including children.
