Two Dead, Nine Injured After Pickup Truck Runs Down Pedestrians in Quebec
A man drove his pickup truck onto the sidewalk killing two older people and injuring nine others including a baby in Amqui, Quebec. Police has now shared that the driver acted deliberately and with premeditation. He handed himself over after the incident and will likely see murder charges for the hit-and-run.
The incident took place on Monday when Steeve Gagnon, 38, was driving in his pickup truck. He swerved from one side of the road to the other to hit victims who were walking on the sidewalk. The victims appeared to be selected at random. “We’re talking about pedestrians who were walking all along the (road), on both sides in fact, over a certain distance,” said Sgt. Claude Doiron.
