Car Crashes Into Barriers Outside U.K. Parliament

Two people were taken to local hospitals and another was treated at the scene.

She continued: "I was walking on the other side [of the road]". I heard some noise and someone screamed.

"I saw smoke coming out of the vehicle".

"The male driver of the vehicle was was arrested by officers at the scene".

The man was driving a Ford Fiesta that was traveling on the wrong side of the road at up to 50 miles per hour when it mounted the sidewalk and struck a group of pedestrians and cyclists before slamming into the barriers, the Telegraph reported.

"An ambulance turned up and tried to attend to the person".

Eyewitnesses described the vehicle as being driven at high speed before hitting carriers.

"It looked deliberate. It didn't look like an accident", he said. How do you do that by accident?

UPDATED at 5:38 a.m. 8/14/18: London's Metropolitan Police say they are treating crash outside of Parliament as a terrorist incident; man arrested.

The driver was alone in the vehicle and no weapons were recovered at the scene.

"A number of people were injured as a result of the collision and they have been taken to hospital".

But she insisted she "never signed that draconian NDA that they presented to me when I walked into the White House". He puts out so much information and misinformation so I think people start paying less attention to the scandals.

At this stage, officers do not believe anybody is in a life-threatening condition. Officers remain at the scene.

Nearby Westminster Underground station was closed and the building cordoned off.

It is unclear if the incident was terror related.

U.S. President Donald Trump was less measured, tweeting that the crash was "another terrorist attack in London". He said the auto "actually came off the ground and landed again" as it slammed into the barrier and there was "a lot of smoke".

"I was going to continue towards Parliament, but was told to get off my bike".

Superintendent Chris Horton from British Transport Police, said: "We know incidents such as this are likely to cause concern, so our officers will be highly visible both on board trains and at stations".

"I wasn't sure whether he meant to hit the cyclists, they might have just been in the way, but once he did, he accelerated towards the barrier".

Police were still working on formally identifying the man, who is "not cooperating", said Basu, adding that the driver was not thought to have been known to MI5 or counter-terrorism police.

No information on the number of victims was initially released, but witnesses say several injuries were visible on the scene.

The cordon has been widened twice and sniffer dogs have been seen in the area.

Another witness said a man in a black jacket was removed from the auto by police, adding that the attack took place near the House of Lords, the U.K.'s upper chamber of Parliament. In that attack, Masood leapt from his smashed auto with a knife and began slashing at police and passersby.
