Van mounts sidewalk and strikes as many as 10 Pedestrians in Toronto

Some of the images show a Ryder rental van on the sidewalk close to the front of a building, it appears from the photo the van was driven there between trees lining the sidewalk so perhaps this is an intentional act.

I guess the investigation will bear out any motives if that applies, the driver is in custody.

No real reporting on extent of injuries yet, almost sounds as if only one is in serious condition, but remains to be seen. Media almost always seems to get it wrong early on, but I'm hopeful.

Listening to CFRB now, they are reporting multiple deaths and much discussion about Terrorist attack. I don't want to jump to conclusions but Canada has been lucky to not have a significant attacks it seems up until now.

I'm sorry this happened and it is a real pleasure to see how our Canadian brothers don't prejudge as easily as has seen here so often.

What ever or for what reason this occurred, it is scary.

Van mounts sidewalk?

I guess, if after a long, frigid winter, you haven't seen your sidewalk for 8 months, eh?

They are now referring to this as an "attack", although not calling it terrorism.

I see the Iranian sign but isn't that a mostly Korean area? Odd place for a terrorist attack, unless maybe it was targeting Shia muslims?

This area has a lot of office buildings, and a large residential area off of the main part of the street. Mixed population with a large jewish make up.

Thats some carnage.
Good that they got the driver alive so he can be held accountable for his actions.
I guess thats better for victims/relatives to process their grief/loss (obviously depending on what kind of scentence he gets, but at least its not in the perpetrators hands)


Nice to see that certain people here now have a more wait and see attitude instead of jumping to false conclusions prior to what the police on the scene have to say, like what happened in the last (Münsters) attack topic.
