Man jumps through car window to stop reckless driver
At first, the driver appeared to evade efforts to stop him. But then a man ran out of the crowd and jumped, feet first, through his open window.
“A quantity of suspected cannabis was found and seized on this citizen,” the statement read.
The driver crashed into three vehicles before going through protective barriers in the square, police added.
CNN affiliate A2 identified the man who jumped out the open window as Klodian Elqeni, “who with very courageous action managed to incapacitate the driver of the car,” the outlet reported.
