At least 11 people injured as car hits pedestrians near London’s Natural History Museum

London’s Metropolitan Police has confirmed that at least 11 people were injured today when a car jumped the pavement and hit pedestrians near London’s Natural History Museum.

Eleven people were treated at the scene, mostly for leg and head injuries, with nine transported to a hospital, according to the London Ambulance Service. The injuries are not considered life-threatening, police said.

“The incident is a road traffic investigation and not a terrorist-related incident,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement this evening.
