"Although as many as four ambulances have arrived, no casualties have been reported," it said.

The dtp.kiev.ua outlet covering traffic accidents and incidents in Kyiv said on Facebook that the police had failed to identify the driver yet they had arrested several bystanders, as there was "a fight between cops and local residents... who were attempting to lynch the driver."

"The main suspect had a traumatic gun, which he used to threaten everyone around. Eyewitnesses said: 'A car with license plate 7777 quickly arrived and quickly picked up all personal belongings from the BMW,'" the report said.

"One [bystander] was arrested for 'touching a patrol car' and another one -- for insulting a National Police officer. This lasted about two hours. More than a hundred people were on the scene, they insisted on a breath test [for the driver]. A brawl between patrol police officers and citizens sparked several times," dtp.kiev.ua added.
