London police are investigating a Saturday morning incident by the Natural History Museum after a car plowed into a crowd of pedestrians, causing chaos.

“It is believed that a number of pedestrians have been injured,” the Metropolitan Police reported in a statement. “Officers are on scene, and the London Ambulance Service have been called. A man (no further dets) has been detained at the scene. Enquiries to establish the circumstances are underway.”

A tweet from the Natural History Museum called the case “a serious incident” and will provide updates as they become available. The event is not being treated as a terrorist act, according to police.
