Terror Attack Suspected in London After Man Plows Into Pedestrians With Car

Playing Witness of London Terror Attack: 'Thank God I Wasn't Actually Hit'

A witness recalled the horrifying details of the moment an alleged terrorist crashed into pedestrians outside Parliament in London on Tuesday.

Two people were hurt when a man in his 20s drove a silver Ford Fiesta into cyclists and pedestrians during morning rush hour.

"He was actually behind me, so I'm just, I thank God that I wasn't actually hit, you know? It was that close to me, I was ... I'm just, like, so shocked,” the witness, who was not named, told APTN.

Police later arrested the man on suspicion of terrorist offenses. None of the victims’ injuries were life-threatening, reports said.

U.S. President Trump tweeted about the apparent attack on Tuesday morning. 


This isn’t the first act of terrorism in the area. In 2017, Khalid Masood, 52, drove a vehicle into people on the Westminster Bridge and attacked a police officer, killing five.

He was shot dead by authorities.
