“All of an sudden there was some loud engine revs – either with the car having been floored in a low gear or with the clutch depressed.
“Then I heard a series of bangs and saw the Smart car come across the pavement a few metres ahead of me.
“It collided with a man who was outside the door of the Starbucks and I thought immediately that it had gone over him.”
Authorities currently do not consider the incident to be terror-related.
