Toronto, furgone travolge un gruppo di pedoni: 9 morti e 16 feriti. Arrestato l'autista

  Un furgone bianco ha travolto un gruppo di pedoni a Toronto, in Canada. Il bilancio ufficiale arriva solo a distanza di ore: 9 persone sono morte e 16 sono ferite. Tra queste ultime, cinque sono in condizioni critiche, altre due in condizioni serie. L'autista del veicolo, che si era inizialmente dato alla fuga, è stato arrestato.

Non ci sono al momento notizie sulla dinamica dell'incidente, avvenuto a nord della città, all'incrocio tra Yonge e Finch. Secondo alcuni testimoni l'uomo avrebbe estratto una pistola, ma la polizia locale su Twitter specifica: "Non ci sono stati spari". Fonti investigative citate dai media locali rilevano che "sembra un atto deliberato".

Toronto collision: Nine dead and 16 injured after van mounts pavement

 

Nine people have killed and 16 injured after a man drove a van into pedestrians in Toronto, police said.

The driver fled the scene of the incident, at a busy intersection in the north of the Canadian city.

He was arrested several blocks away and taken into custody. Authorities said they had not yet established a motive for the apparent attack.

Reza Hashemi, who owns a video shop on Yonge Street, told the BBC he heard screaming on the other side of the road.

Mr Hashemi said the driver mounted the pavement, ran into people, and returned to mount the pavement again.

The incident occurred at Yonge Street and Finch Avenue at 13:30 local time (17:30 GMT) on Monday. The crime scene encompassed a 2km (1.24 mile) stretch of Yonge Street.

About 18 miles (30km) away, downtown, the Group of Seven foreign ministers of industrialised nations - including Canada, the US, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan - were holding meetings.

Pictures apparently taken at the scene showed police armed with rifles and paramedics treating injured people. One orange bag, which appeared to contain a body, was loaded on to an ambulance.

"Reports were that a white van mounted the kerb, drove down the sidewalk at southbound Yonge, south of Finch, and struck eight to 10 people possibly, the numbers aren't confirmed yet," Toronto police spokesperson Gary Long told Canadian broadcaster Global News.
