The BBC reported that Saturday's incident on Exhibition Road initially sparked panic in an area popular with families and tourists.
Eyewitnesses said a large number of police and armed personal had arrived at the Exhibition Road outside the museum, and paramedics were attending to the injured, while the situation seemed under control.
Police described the incident in the South Kensington area of west London as a collision and said it was not being treated as a terrorism-related incident.
Nine of the 11 injured people were taken to hospital, but it is understood that no one has suffered serious injuries. Police said none of the injuries were life-threatening or life-changing and the majority of those hospitalised had now been discharged.
Both have since been determined to be unrelated to terrorism, but caused worry in the English capital, where there's heightened sensitivity following a number of recent terror attacks.
Major cities across Europe, including London, have been the target of terrorists using vehicles to mow down pedestrians.
The police, in a statement, said: "Enquiries to establish the circumstances and motive are underway". The driver, Darren Osborne, 47, a resident of Cardiff in Wales, was arrested at the scene.
What happened: A vehicle mounted the sidewalk near the South Kensington museum at around 2:20 p.m. local time, hitting several pedestrians. The Royal Albert Hall, which has heavy bollards erected outside its entrance, is also in the area.
"I was getting off the Tube at South Kensington station, the doors opened and about 50 people came running down the Tube station escalator. We are working w/ @metpoliceuk and will provide an update when we have more information".
The UK is now under a "severe" level of threat of terror attack, according to the MI5 Security Service's rating system.
