A suspect is under arrest after a white van jumped a curb in Toronto and struck several pedestrians Monday afternoon.
The suspected terror attack happened on Yonge Street south of Finch Avenue and police estimate eight to ten people were struck, according to CTV News.
Witness Alex Shaker told CTV News the van was traveling at high speed on the sidewalk heading south.
“He started going down on the sidewalk and crumbling down people one by one,” Shaker said.
“He just destroyed so many people’s lives,” he said. “Every single thing that got in his way.”
Speaking to CTV News witness Carol Roberts said she saw “a lot of people lying lifeless on the ground.”
“It was just so many bodies,” she said.
Witness Phil Zullo, who was driving northbound, says he first noticed the commotion when he saw police taking down a male suspect.
Zullo says he continued north, where he saw “shoes and hats flown everywhere.”
The suspect was arrested beside the van which was marked as being from rental company Ryder.
Video shared with CTV News shows the suspect pointing a small, dark object at police, with his back to the van. Police can be seen taking cover and shouting at the suspect.
Subway service has been suspended in parts of Toronto.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the situation, saying,
“Our hearts go out to anyone affected…We’re obviously going to have more to learn and more to say in the coming hours.”
