Two dead in a hit-and-run in Canada

Two men died on Monday when they were struck by a pickup truck as they were walking along the side of a highway. The event occurred in the town of Amqui, in eastern Quebec, in Canada.

Police reported that nine other people were injured, some seriously.

The driver, 38 years old and a resident of the town, turned himself in to the police and was arrested.

The authorities said they had no information at the moment if the multiple hit-and-run, which occurred at 3:00 p.m. local time (7:00 p.m. GMT), was an accident or an intentional act. They rule out that the incident is related to terrorism or national security.

On February 8, two children were killed and six others injured when a municipal bus crashed into a day care center in the town of Laval, near Montreal.

The Laval incident is being treated by the authorities as intentional.

Canadian courts have ordered a mental evaluation of the bus driver, Pierre Ny St-Amand, 51, to determine if he suffered from some form of transient mental disorder.

After crashing the bus into the nursery, St-Amand left the vehicle screaming and naked. Several individuals had to use force to hold him until the police arrived.
