A car ran into a crowd celebrating a Muslim holiday in Newcastle, United Kingdom, injuring six people—three of them were children, police say, according to Fox News.

The incident, which police say is not terrorism related, occurred on Sunday outside the Westgate Sports Center where people gathered to celebrate the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

Video footage taken at the incident shows the driver as a black Muslim woman.

Police arrested a 42-year-old woman and say they are not looking for other suspects. A full investigation is underway.

Three adults and three children are being treated for injuries at a local hospital.

In videos on social media, people can be seen rushing toward the site of the crash to see what happened.

People were just leaving a prayer session when the car ran into the crowd, according to Newcastle Central Mosque, Fox News reported.

Britain is on high alert due to a string of recent terrorist attacks. On June 3, a van mowed down people on a bridge in London. Three Islamic terrorists then went on a stabbing spree, killing seven people and injuring 48, before police neutralized them.

Eid al-Fitr celebrates the end of Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting.

During the 2017 Ramadan, Islamic terrorists carried out 174 terror attacks, killing 1,595 people, and wounding 1,557, according to The Religion of Peace, a website tracks Islamic terror across the globe.
