Car hits pedestrians at Eid event in Newcastle, 6 casualties, ‘not believed to be terror’

A car has plowed into people gathering for Eid prayers near a Newcastle mosque, UK media reports. Six people have been injured and a female driver has been arrested, police said.

The crash occurred outside the Westgate Sports Centre, according to a Northumbria Police statement.

The incident is not being treated as a terrorist attack, according to police.

A 42-year-old woman is in police custody.

“Emergency services are currently at the scene and five casualties have been confirmed,” Northumbria Police reported.

Witness Asif Anwar, 29, told the Chronicle that there are two children among the injured.

“The lady lost control of the car and hit some people. Two of them were kids,” he said. “It was chaos, everyone was panicking. People just don’t know what is going on these days. Terrorism is what everyone was thinking straight away.”
