MOSCOW (Reuters) - A taxi mounted a pavement in central Moscow on Saturday and accelerated into a crowd of people, knocking over pedestrians and carrying some on the bonnet of the car for a short distance, according to video of the incident posted on social media.

The driver of the taxi, who wore black trousers and a black t-shirt, was then shown running away from the scene.
