The Metropolitan Police said a “number” of pedestrians were injured Saturday after a car crash by the Natural History Museum in London.

Authorities arrested the driver of the car at the scene, but police have not established the cause of the incident.

“Officers are on scene, and the London Ambulance Service have been called. A man has been arrested at the scene,” the Metroplitan Police told The Independent. “Enquiries to establish the circumstances and motive are underway.”

The injuries appear to be minor, said a BBC reporter who was at the scene.

“I could see was a car diagonally across the road, looking like it was going into one of the boulders on the side of the road, and I could see a crowd of people around what was clearly one or two people on the pavement,” BBC reporter Chloe Hayward said.

 

A number of vehicle attacks have taken place in London this year. Five people were killed March 22 in a car attack on Westminster Bridge. Eight victims died and dozens were injured after a car and stabbing attack June 3 by London Bridge.

A man drove a rental van through a crowd of Muslims June 18 as they left a mosque following Ramadan prayers. One man died and a number of people were injured.
