Cardiff Hit And Run Crashes: Woman Killed
A woman has been killed and 11 others injured - including seven children - in a series of hit and run crashes in Cardiff.
The woman was named locally as 32-year-old mother Karina Menzies, who died after she was knocked down outside a fire station in the Welsh capital.
Police have arrested a 31-year-old man in the wake of the collisions, which occurred at six different locations in the Ely and Leckwith areas.
Superintendent Julian Williams from South Wales Police said the man was arrested while driving a white flat-bed truck.
Sky News sources say the truck is an Iveco transit van.
The man remains in custody at Cardiff Bay police station on suspicion of murder.
Reports suggested that the driver at the centre of the collisions targeted pedestrians deliberately.

Ramesh Patel, who runs RM Patel Convenience Stores on Cowbridge Road West, said: "I was in the shop working at the time so I didn't actually see anything but customers have said a white van purposely drove at people."
"Obviously, when someone tries to run you down deliberately that is frightening, not pleasant at all.
"I was working here in the store so I didn't see that myself but that is what most people who have come in here have said. People seem very shocked."
Supt Williams said: "Whether the actions were deliberate or reckless is a matter for the inquiry and the person will obviously be spoken to."
He said the fatality occurred at Cowbridge Road West, outside the fire station.
Family members of the deceased woman have been informed.
"Our thoughts are obviously with her family. Our family liaison officers are with the family at the moment," Supt Williams said.
Those injured - including seven children and four adults - have been taken to the city's University Hospital of Wales.
Their condition remains unknown.
The hospital's accident and emergency department was only dealing with those injured in the crashes, and it was closed to other admissions.
