The drugged driver was arrested after barreling into a U-Bahn station in Berlin. It is the second time this year a car has driven into an U-Bahn station.

Police chased a car through Berlin's streets on Sunday before the driver lost control and plowed down a flight of stairs into an underground station, miraculously not injuring or killing anyone.

The 25-year-old driver without a valid license admitted to taking drugs before the hot police pursuit through the German capital.

His black Ford smashed against a column inside the Rathaus Spandau U-Bahn stop after it hit a median in the road, went over the sidewalk and flew down the entrance stairs.

The man was arrested, but two people inside the car with him fled the scene.

The police chase started after a traffic control stop. The car's license plate numbers were on a police list, a police spokesperson said.

At the time of the crash, about 20:15, there were many people in the station. One man had to jump out of the way of the car.

"We can speak of a certain degree of luck that nothing happened," a police spokesperson said.

It was the first time a car drove into an underground station in Berlin.

In May, a driver seeking to avoid hitting a cyclist lost control and went down the stairs of the U-Bahn station at Bernauer Street. The accident left the driver, passenger and a pedestrian severely injured.

Three other people were lightly injured.
