The three injured, one male and two female, are all at their early 20s, said the consulate.
A auto has "deliberately" mowed down terrified pedestrians after mounting a pavement near a high school in north west France - leaving at least three injured. According to the police, three students were injured.
At least two are in critical condition.
Police Sources have said that the incident was deliberate but the driver, reported to be aged 28, was not on a security watch list.
Authorities say the victims were rushed to nearby hospitals, but none of them are suffering from life threatening injuries.
