United Kingdom prime minister Boris Johnson has been involved in a car crash outside Parliament on Wednesday, June 17.
Johnson's convoy was targeted by a protester as the prime minister left the Palace of Westminster.
According to Cornwall Live, the demonstrator, who had been protesting about Turkish action against Kurdish rebels, ran into the road outside the gates to Parliament.
Legit.ng notes that this forced the lead vehicles in the convoy - a police motorbike and Johnson's car - to stop, with a support vehicle running into the back of the luxury saloon carrying the prime minister.
Authorities said there were no reports of anyone being injured in the incident.
The protester who targeted the prime minister's car was detained by police and taken into the Palace of Westminster by officers.

Adeniyi said he worked as a roadside mechanic for six months without being paid during his undergraduate years at the higher institution where he studied engineering.
He said bailing oneself out of the less privileged circle is by showcasing "uncommon knowledge", adding that one becomes irresistible by doing so.
Adeniyi shared a picture in which he was flanked by two roadside mechanics to show his humble beginning.
He said: "I like sharing this picture because it reminds me of a time I worked with roadside mechanics as a University Engineering Student for 6 months and was never paid a kobo. I felt cheated but what I learned was priceless."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Australia's trade minister Simon Birmingham said the country is unlikely to reopen its border to international travellers until next year due to COVID-19.
The minister, however, said Australia will look to relax entry rules for students and other long-term visitors.
Birmingham, who made the disclosure on Wednesday, June 17, said a quarantine rule for returning citizens could be applied to international students and other visitors who plan to stay for a long period of time.
He said: "We can simply work through the 14-day quarantine periods that have worked so well in terms of returning Australians to this country safely."
