Three people have been injured after a man drove his car into a crowd outside a French university, The Guardian reports.

A 28-year-old man known to police rammed into the group in Blagnac, near Toulouse, outside the Lycée Saint-Exupéry 4pm on Friday (local time).

Europe 1 radio reports the man told police he "received orders" to do it, accelerating into the group as they were crossing the road.

He continued driving and was arrested minutes later.

One Chinese woman and Chinese two men, all in their early 20s, were injured, with the woman in a serious condition.

It is not known whether the injured are students of the university.
