A man arrested after his auto ploughed into pedestrians in London's museum district, injuring 11 people and sparking fears of a terror attack, was released from custody on Sunday (Oct 8), police said.

A BBC reporter who was leaving the Natural History Museum as the incident occurred said that she saw a vehicle diagonally come across the road looking like it was going into one of the boulders on the side of the road.

Near Natural history Museum in Central London, a auto drove onto the sidewalk, the incident resulted in several people injured.

London Ambulance Service, in a statement, stated, "We treated 11 patients, mostly for head and leg injuries, and took nine of them to the hospital". She said police on the scene confirmed most injuries were not life-threatening.

The crash took place on a busy day in London's museum district, which is also home to the Science Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

The incident comes as the terror threat level in Britain is at "severe", its second-highest level, meaning that an attack is likely. A spokeswoman for the London force said counter-terrorism officers were assessing the incident but had not yet reached a conclusion as to the circumstances.

Police said it was a traffic incident after three attacks in the British capital this year in which vehicles were deliberately driven into people on the street.
