German police say a car has slammed into an outdoor cafe in a town on the Swiss border, killing one and leaving several others injured.

Police told the dpa news agency Saturday that the car's driver appears to have braked too hard and gone into a skid, sliding into several tables of the cafe in Bad Saeckingen.

Police say that in addition to the fatality, at least 10 people were injured including four seriously.

They say driver error appears to be the cause of the crash.
