He added that the vehicle was a BMW. The driver is on the run.

A man in a getaway vehicle was injured during his arrest on the A16 motorway in northern France following a auto attack on military soldiers in Levallois-Perret (Hauts-de-Seine, north of Paris) on Wednesday, according to local media.

"Search underway for vehicle", Paris Police tweeted on Wednesday. Police have closed off the roads.

The driver then fled the scene, a police spokeswoman said on Wednesday. "This vehicle was waiting for them", he said. The man was stopped as police were hunting for the vehicle, believed to be a BMW, that was involved in the attack.

Franceinfo spoke to the mayor of Levallois-Perret, who condemned the possible attack against military personnel in the commune. The man shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is great) before being arrested and telling police that he wanted to kill a soldier.

He told Balkany told BFM TV: "It's without doubt a deliberate act".

One of the officials said the arrest took place on the A16 highway when the man was stopped as police hunted for cars suspected of involvement in the attack.

More than 230 people have been killed in terror attacks in France since the start of 2015. "It's an odious act of aggression".

The wave of attacks in France has had a serious impact on tourism in the world's top tourist destination, but the industry has begun to recover as incidents have become more widespread and generally less deadly.

The increasing number of attacks spurred French counterterrorism prosecutors to ramp up investigations and actively pursue perpetrators who are connected to a terrorist enterprise and attempt to murder French security forces.

Reuters cited a judicial source, saying that the man arrested on the motorway was the suspect behind the attack in the Paris suburb.

"It all happened very quickly", he said.

Four of the soldiers suffered light injuries while two were hospitalized in the Percy military hospital south of Paris, police officials said.

In April, a policeman was shot dead on the Champs-Elysees by a man with a long criminal record, who investigators determined was acting from terrorist motives.
