Two students at a French school have been badly injured in a vehicle attack, according to local media.

The attack occurred in front of the Blagnac campus of the Institute for Social Research, an AFP journalist said. According to the French police, a man driving a auto outside a high school near Toulouse "deliberately" rammed into the students, leaving two of them in a serious condition, AFP said.

The French news channel BFM reports the driver, who was immediately arrested, was known to authorities for previous crimes but was not on a list of known extremists. However, the man had been in conflict of the law in drugs-related cases. They were all transported to the hospital.
