A witness at the Westminster attack in front of the UK Parliament told news outlets that a car “overtook him after the first signal and ran over a man.”
He added that “after a few meters, he ran over another – there were a lot of people on the bridge near the parliament.”
Two people have been reportedly killed in an attack that took place outside the Houses of Parliament in London on Wednesday and dozens have been injured.
British police shot a suspected attacker after an officer was stabbed in what police said was a “terrorist” incident.
The building in the heart of the British capital was immediately sealed off and MPs and staff ordered to remain inside.
