A French prosecutor said a vehicle that rammed into a group of students in a city in southwest France on Friday was driven by a man known to have "psychiatric" problems.

Two people have reportedly been seriously wounded while all the injured are said to be of Chinese origin.

Toulouse prosecutor Pierre-Yves Couilleau said the man told police he "deliberately" hit the group in Blagnac around 4 p.m. with a Renault Clio vehicle, BFM TV reported.

Two men aged 22 and 23, and a 23-year woman who was in a more serious condition, were hit on a pedestrian crossing outside IGS College just before 4pm local time (3pm United Kingdom time), the reports said.

The driver, a 28-year-old man who was known to police for committing minor offenses, was arrested at the scene, polices sources said.

He told police that he "heard voices" telling him "to hurt someone", Ladepeche newspaper reported.

The driver, a man, was arrested.

The suspect, a single man who lives with his mother in Blagnac, had previously suffered severe psychiatric problems and was released from a court-ordered hospital stay in December 2016, the prosecutor said. These are Chinese students.
