The suspected driver who plowed into a group of people on a crowded city street Monday afternoon did it purpose. His target was pedestrians. Yet, liberal networks are calling it a "Hit-and-run". Look at this CBS New headline:
It was not a "hit-and-run". There's a difference between "hit and run" and "hit, back up, hit again and flee". The attack left at least 9 dead, 16 hurt.
"The van involved in multiple pedestrians stuck in the Yonge and Finch area of Toronto has been located and the driver arrested," Toronto police tweeted.
According to sources, it was indeed a terrorist attack. But will the main stream media report it as such?
"Former NYC Police commissioner Bill Bratton states on @MSNBC his sources in Canada say van driver in #Toronto was known to Police and now consider incident a terrorist attack. Motivation and affiliation unknown," states one source.
“[The driver] was definitely in control of what he was doing…he knew what he was doing,” Nick told Global News.
Alex Shaker, who witnessed the incident, said the van was speeding down the street before it mounted the curb and plowed into people.
“He started going down on the sidewalk and crumbling down people one by one,” Shaker told CTV. “He just destroyed so many people’s lives. Every single thing that got in his way.”
A worker at a gym in a building next to the site of the incident told Fox News that employees were told to stay inside as first responders tended to the scene.
Global News journalist Jeremy Cohn said there were “bodies all over” the street and some people had been pronounced dead.
“I’ve now walked up Yonge St from north of Sheppard to Finch. I have passed multiple dead bodies covered up, shoes and debris in the road. Witnesses tell me the white van appeared completely out of control,” Cohn tweeted.
“Ryder is aware of an incident involving a Ryder rental van striking pedestrians in Toronto on Monday April 23rd in the early afternoon,” the rental company told Fox News. “We are saddened by this tragic event, and our deepest sympathies go out to those impacted. We take the safety and security of our entire fleet very seriously and we are cooperating fully with authorities.”
