A car slammed into a police van in Paris's popular Champs Elysees shopping district Monday, French police said.

"#ChampsElysees situation under control, no one from the police force or the public was injured," Paris police tweeted from their official account.

Police were reportedly responding to social media posts showing a car on fire in the area. The driver of the car has been arrested.

Police had earlier advised the public to avoid the area on Twitter and cordoned off an area near the presidential palace.
