A car has crashed into pedestrians outside Amsterdam's central train station, injuring at least eight.

The vehicle only came to a stop when it hit a wall, reports say.

Six victims were rushed to hospital, two in a serious condition; the other two were treated at the scene, reports The Telegraph.

The driver has been arrested. 

Amsterdam police say there is "no indication whatsoever" the driver had a terrorist motive. The Telegraph says police sources suggest the driver was "unwell".

A black Peugeot at the scene had a crack in its windscreen.

The incident happened exactly a week after terrorists drove into a crowd in London, attacking people with knives.
