France - Lyon Airport Closed After Man Drives Car On Runway (Video)

The airport of Lyon (the third biggest city in France after Paris and Bordeaux) was closed for all traffic after a man drove his car onto the runway whilst being chased by police forces.

In the hereunder video, the white Mercedes car is seen careening across the dirt and onto the runway before the fugitive throws himself from the vehicle and starts running from police.

The police are present in great numbers. It is so far unclear what the driver intended.

A witness confirmed that the car raced through part of the arrival hall around 11.25 am.

The car broke through one door and drove outside again through another door. Luckily no one was injured.

According to local newspaper Lyon Capitale, the car then went on the runway, followed by the police. The aircrafts present on the tarmac were stopped.
