Police on Amsterdam car incident: No indication of attack


A auto has ploughed into pedestrians outside Amsterdam's Centraal station, injuring at least eight - two seriously. Police spoke to the driver and asked to see his licence which he showed them, the Parool reported.

Pictures taken at the scene show the area cordoned off and police said the driver has been arrested. 'Of course we are carrying out further inquiries to rule out anything else, ' the spokesman told reporters.

Two people were admitted to hospital with serious injuries, and others were treated at the scene after the vehicle hit the crowd and then crashed into a wall.

Eight people were wounded, with two critically injured.

The driver crashed into pedestrians and then into a wall, before being arrested. The auto driver then drove away with high speed across the Stationsplein square in front of the station, hitting several people and crashing to the subway entrance wall.

As he was approached by officers he sped off and hit a wall, crashing into a crowd of people. Two people were taken to hospital.

The incident did not appear to be intentional or terror-related, police said.
