The AFP news agency cited a French police source who said the auto "deliberately" rammed a group of three students - two of whom were badly injured, and one who was not as seriously hurt.

One of those three students is said to be in critical condition.

The BFM news channel said the man was known to police for previous non-terror crimes and officers were checking reports he suffered from major psychological problems.

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

French police clarified however, that the 28-year-old driver is not on a security watch-list and after an investigation the public prosecutor said there are no indications that the auto attack was an act of terrorism.

The injured students were taken to a hospital in Toulouse.
