Australian police have arrested two people after a car drove into a crowd in Melbourne, the BBC reports.

The car “collided with a number of pedestrians” on Flinders Street, a busy junction in the centre of the city, said Victoria Police.

Fourteen people have been injured, with several in a critical condition.

Police have said it was a deliberate act but said it was too early to say whether it was terrorist-related.

The driver and another man have been detained.

“The motivations are unknown,” police commander Russell Barrett told the press.

Authorities have asked people to avoid the area.
