A 24-YEAR-OLD MAN is being held by police after a car ploughed into a group of pedestrians in Doncaster, northern England, late last night.

The BBC reports that three women, aged 53 and 54, and a 59-year-old man died in the crash at Sutton Road in Askern at around 11pm.

Another man, aged 56, is being treated in hospital where he’s said to be in a serious condition.

The man was arrested on suspicion of causing death by dangerous driving.

It comes just days after a woman in her 70s was killed when a car crashed into a Costa Coffee shop in Kent.

Dozens of ambulances attended the scene on Christmas Eve, and another five people were treated in hospital.
