Another London Car Ramming – “Not Terrorism”

 In Foreign

Another London car ramming hit pedestrians just before 3 a.m. on Tuesday in Brixton, southwest London. Police do not consider it a terrorist attack, as it was reportedly part of an altercation between the occupants of the VW Golf and pedestrians.

The Guardian UK reported,

“The Metropolitan police said five men aged between 23 and 42 were injured when the car hit a number of people on Stockwell Road near the junction of Sidney Road, in south-west London, just before 3am. None of the injured were in a critical condition.

Officers said they believed the collision occurred shortly after an altercation between the occupants of the vehicle and a number of pedestrians.

The car, a Volkswagen Golf, was abandoned at the scene and a number of occupants ran away, the Met said. It was not being treated as a terrorist incident or a hate crime.”

No arrests have been made, as the perpetrator(s) fled the scene.

The incident barely made the news in London, so it’s likely that it was not terrorism related.  Maybe. What was the nationality of the perpetrators?
