A truck driver and a man who authorities said drove a stolen truck into a Christmas market in central China has been arrested after the logo of the social media company was found on the vehicle, according to police.
A witness spotted the truck driver’s truck and noticed the truck had a license plate that looked like it belonged to a Twitter account, Xinhua news agency reported Sunday.
The man was arrested and has been identified by police as Yang Yuhua, a 33-year-old from Chongqing, China, and a member of a criminal gang who drove the truck into the main market in Shenzhen, according the Xinhua report.
Authorities found a photo of Yang Yulua on the driver’s side of the truck.
“The license plate is from Twitter and it has a Twitter logo on it,” Shenzhen police chief Zhou Guangwei told the Xinhan news agency.
Yang Yuhui has been charged with causing the accident, according police.
The suspect’s family said they were shocked by the discovery.
Police have not identified the driver or said whether the truck was stolen.
