Car Crash Near London's Natural History Museum Hurts 11

Car mounts pavement outside London museum, according to reports

A auto collided with almost a dozen pedestrians outside London's Natural History Museum on Saturday and authorities are saying it is not terrorism-related.

Nine people were hospitalized with head and leg injuries that were not judged to be life-changing.

But police later said the incident was not "terrorist-related" and is being treated as a road traffic collision.

There were fears this could have been a terrorist incident, but the police confirmed at 6pm that it had been a road accident. "He is now in custody at a north London police station, officials said".

A Reuters witness said there were large numbers of police, including armed officers, and paramedics at the scene although the atmosphere appeared calm.

Saturday's incident at about 14:20 BST on Exhibition Road initially sparked panic in an area popular with families and tourists.

A spokesman later said the incident was not being treated as terrorism-related at this stage. An image and footage of a man being restrained by four people emerged on twitter.

The fiance of singer Pixie Lott, Oliver Cheshire, was one of those who held down the driver of the auto involved in the incident. Helicopters buzzed overhead as ambulances rushed to the scene on Exhibition Road.

"It is a road traffic collision", they said.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Whilst inquiries continue it is believed a vehicle mounted the pavement and collided with a number of pedestrians".

The current terror threat in the United Kingdom is at "severe" - the second highest level - meaning an attack is highly likely.

There have been five attacks described officially as terrorism this year, three involving vehicles.

In June, three Islamist militants drove into pedestrians on London Bridge and then stabbed people at nearby restaurants and bars, killing eight.

In a message later on Twitter, she said: "My thanks to the first responders at this incident this afternoon and the actions of members of the public".

The suspect, identified as a 52-year-old British man named Khalid Masood, also stabbed an unarmed police officer.
