A auto crash that injured 11 people Saturday outside London's popular Natural History Museum was a traffic accident, not a terrorist attack, London police said.

The Metropolitan Police said a "number" of people had been injured and one person was arrested following the incident on Exhibition Road in South Kensington, the BBC reported.

Police officers stand on duty following an incident between the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Natural History Museum, in the South Kensington district of London, on October 7, 2017.

London's Metropolitan Police said they were called to the scene at 2:21 pm (1321 GMT) after reports of a collision.

Photographs showed a dented silver auto and a man being pinned to the ground outside the museum. They added a man had been detained.

Video footage posted on Twitter showed the man being restrained on the ground by members of the public.

Police established a large security cordon around the area within minutes, closing some roads, and police helicopters hovered overhead.

The Natural History Museum is the fourth most popular tourist attraction in the United Kingdom, with 4.6 million visits during 2016, according to the Association of Leading Visitor Attractions.

In late June, a van hit pedestrians near a north London mosque, killing one man and injuring 11 people.

Nearby museums including the Science Museum and Victoria and Albert Museum were evacuated with Tube stations sealed off by police. Many are believed to be injured in the incident but an official statement on this is awaited.

Downing Street said the Prime Minister was being kept up-to-date on developments.

Police tweeted a "number of people" were hurt but gave no further detail.

A spokeswoman for the Natural History Museum told the BBC that "the Museum's visitors and staff are always our first priority".
