Driver crashes through Lyon airport terminal and speeds on to runway

Flight risk The dramatic car chase had begun on a nearby motorway when the driver of a Mercedes had refused to stop at a police check point

Video posted to social media and broadcast on French TV shows the closing moments of a dramatic chase scene, where a white auto speeds past the runway, with police in pursuit.

It showed the auto hitting a bump at one point, being lifted off the ground by the impact and then landing again in a cloud of dust, movie style.

Nobody was injured in the incident, which led to the suspension of all flights in and out of Lyon Saint-Exupery airport, situated in the east of the city.

Police were trying to determine the man's motives.

He then fled the vehicle and ran along the runway as multiple police cars chased him, as caught on video.

The driver jumped out while the vehicle was still rolling and sprinted off on foot, pursued by a police van. "You should be vigilant in public places and follow the advice of local French authorities", they advise. The vehicle he used as a battering ram was stolen, the official added. Police fired shots during the pursuit, the official said.

The driver first smashed through a security barrier at the Lyon-Bron business airport before changing direction and heading to Lyon's main Saint-Exupery airport about 20km away.

Highway police and a police helicopter laid chase, the regional government said in a statement.

There, the man rammed through more security barriers.

Before driving onto the runway the man had driven the auto into the glass doors of one of the airport terminals.

All air traffic to and from the airport was halted while the chase went on.

Before breaking into the airport, the unnamed suspect had driven up the motorway the wrong way for several miles and caused multiple accidents.
