Vehicle strikes pedestrians in London, causing “a number of casualties’

A van has plowed into a group of pedestrians outside a mosque in London, killing several people, cops said.

British police have arrested the driver and are on the scene investigating.

There are reportedly several casualties, with at least six people being spotted on the ground.

The incident was said to have occurred on Seven Sisters Road near the Finsbury Park mosque shortly after midnight local time, according to the Telegraph.

It comes just weeks after the London bridge terrorist attack, in which three ISIS extremists drove a van into a group of people before going off on a deadly stabbing spree.

Police officials have not confirmed whether the collision was deliberate.

Witnesses told the Telegraph that the driver of the van appeared to lose control just moments before striking the pedestrians.

It’s unclear if those who were struck by the vehicle were Muslims leaving the mosque.

“Horrible to watch police officers doing cardiac massage at people on the floor, desperately trying to save them,” tweeted Cynthia Vanzella, who was at the scene.

“I just hope they did.”
