London police say the car that injured 11 people outside of the Natural History Museum at 2:20 p.m. on a Saturday was not a terrorist attack, but a “road traffic accident.” However, witness Katie Craine claims that after she left the museum, she saw the car’s driver in handcuffs being pinned down by police. “He looked really proud of himself,” Craine said. “He was laughing.”
Armed cops arrested the driver, a man said to be in his 40s, after civilians pinned him down until the police could arrive. His vehicle was a black Toyota Prius which we now learn has been registered as a minicab. The man is an Uber driver, and had three girls in the backseat at the time of the crash.
Reportedly, a government security source told the Sunday Times that the driver “blacked out” but that has not been confirmed by police.
