    London police investigating incident of collision with pedestrians

    Police in London were investigating what they called a "major incident" tonight after reports of a vehicle colliding with pedestrians.


    The incident happened near Finsbury Park in the north of London, in Seven Sisters Road, according to officials.


    There were officers on the scene with emergency responders, treating a number of injured people, according to the Metropolitan Police.


    London Ambulance tweeted: "We have sent a number of resources to an incident in Seven Sisters Road."


    One person was in custody and the investigation was ongoing, police said.


    This is a developing story.

    Sounds like a terrorist attack.
    Again.

    I just hope that if the driver meant to attack muslims, that this "incident" will be labeled a terrorist attack. We have a habit of only saying terror when it's a muslim committing the crime.

    It is being treated as a terrorist attack. And rightfully so.

    Such a vile, low, cowardly act.

    This is so appalling. One person murdered and ten injured, two of which are in a critical condition.

    Interesting that no one has highlighted the religion of this terrorist or demanded to know why his community are not doing more to deal with radicalisation.

    Exactly!

    The terrorist was instead taken to the hospital! :eek:

    Had he been muslim, it would have been major headlines with the word "muslim" or "islamic extremist". He would probably have been shot & killed too.

    But at least they are posting his picture & name online.
