An eight-year-old girl has died and at least five people have been injured after a auto was driven into a pizza restaurant to the east of Paris.

The BMW ran into the restaurant Monday evening in Sept-Sorts, part of the Seine-et-Marne area about an hour from the French capital, broadcaster BFMTV reported.

According to local media, the driver has been arrested and will soon be questioned.

Reports say the incident is not being treated as a terror attack.

One witness told BFMTV: "I had just paid and was about to leave the restaurant when a vehicle drove straight into the terrace, it hit the bar and became wedged inside the restaurant".

Last week, a man rammed a group of soldiers in Paris, injuring six of them, before being shot and injured by police as he tried to escape on a motorway. "There were around 20 people in the restaurant".
