Toronto witness phones Ray Hadley: ‘It drove up on the curb and just started bulldozing people’
10 people are dead and 15 injured after a white van slammed into pedestrians in Canada.
The incident occurred in Toronto while many workers were out for their lunch break.
Australian man David lives in Toronto and witnessed the terror.
He phoned Ray Hadley saying he was “right in the centre of where the attack happened”.
“I heard people yelling and screaming so I ran outside and then I saw the van driving like an absolute lunatic.
“It drove up on the curb and just started bulldozing over people. I’m not going to describe on-air what I saw.
“You never think it’s going to happen in your city.”
