Driver who rammed crowd pleads guilty
A man who deliberately rammed a car into pedestrians in a busy Australian city street, injuring 17 people, has pleaded guilty to multiple charges, including murder. Saeed Noori drove his mother’s car into pedestrians on December 21 last year, on a pavement in Melbourne, Australia’s second-largest city. The 33-year-old pleaded guilty in the Victoria state Supreme Court on Friday to the murder of an 83-year-old man. Noori faces a potential life sentence on that conviction. He also pleaded guilty to 11 counts of recklessly causing serious injury, which carries a potential maximum of 15 years in prison, and five counts of conduct endangering life, which carries a potential 10 years in prison.
He will return to court for sentencing in February.
