LISTEN: London attack compared to incident at Ohio State

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WTVN)--Intelligence experts are comparing Wednesday's attack in London, England to what happened at Ohio State last November.

Steve Gomez, a former FBI agent, now with ABC News, says in both cases the assailants, "got the vehicle and drove it onto the grass, and ran it into a number of people."

Wednesday's incident occurred on the street and plaza outside the UK House of Commons. At least a dozen people were struck by a vehicle, and a police officer was stabbed outside of the building. That attacker was shot by police.

The incident there is being investigated as an act of terror.

On November 28th, Abdul Artan ran his vehicle onto the sidewalk and grass outside of Watts Hall, on the OSU campus, then got out of the car and began stabbing people, before he was shot dead by OSU Police Officer Alan Horujko. 13 people in all were hurt.

That incident is also being investigated as an act of terror.

Intelligence experts also see similarities to the incidents in Nice, France and Berlin, Germany, where vehicles were used to attack pedestrians.
