Possible jihad? — Canada: Driver rams rental van into 8 persons, suspect arrested after fleeing scene

Daily Mail Online, April 23, 2018.

A white van has mowed down at least eight pedestrians in Canada, police say.

The extent of the injuries isn’t confirmed after the van struck up to ten people on Yonge St. near Finch Ave, Toronto, at just before 1.30pm on Monday afternoon.

It is not yet clear whether the incident was an accident or intentional.

The van fled the scene after striking the pedestrians. Cops were able to stop the driver a few blocks away.

The suspect has since been arrested.

A reporter at the scene described a gory scene of bodies strewn ‘all over Yonge St.’

‘Some have been pronounced dead on scene,’ Global News journalist, Jeremy Cohn, added.

Police have not confirmed the extent of the injuries but declared it a multi-casualty incident.

Video footage from the scene shows a man being taken into custody a few yards from a large white Ryder van which has serious damage to the front of the vehicle….
