Toronto Van Crash: Full Story of Potential Terror Attack

Toronto police say a van in Toronto has struck and injured at least 8 people and killed five people. At this time, the cause and extent of injuries unknown. Given ISIS’s use of automobiles in the past couple of years in similar incidents, there are early indications that this may be a potential terror attack.  The van that struck the civilians was reportedly white and the unidentified driver reportedly fled after the incident. The suspect was arrested by police afterward.
As a result of the attack, Yonge Street was closed from the intersection at Finch to North York due to a Toronto Police investigation. When the crash happened, Toronto police tweeted that “police were called to Yonge Street and Finch Avenue East.”

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was informed and is currently monitoring the situation. Toronto police currently have the suspect in custody, although there is no indication of their motive or identity.
While early reports indicated that eight people were injured, that number grew to potentially 10 people injured.  Five people have reportedly been killed as a result of the incident.
