Several people are injured after a car struck a group of pedestrians near London's Natural History Museum.

Metropolitan Police got calls about the incident shortly after 2:20 p.m. local time. Police detained one man at the scene.

Authorities said Saturday afternoon they aren't treating it as a "terror-related incident." The U.K. international terror threat level is currently "severe" after several recent attacks.

In mid-September, an explosion went off on a train at the Parsons Green Underground Station, injuring 30 people

Back in June, a man drove a van into pedestrians on London Bridge.

The driver and two other assailants got out of the van at Borough Market and began stabbing people. Eight people were killed in the attack.
