Quebec: Two people were killed and nine injured after being struck by a van in the Canadian town of Amqui, Quebec, provincial police said.
Police spokeswoman Helene St-Pierre said: “The circumstances of the collision were still being investigated and the driver of the van, a 38-year-old man, was under arrest”.
Police were called at about 3pm local time to reports of a collision between a van and pedestrians walking along a road in Amqui, located about 650km north-east of Montreal.
A man in his 70s and another man in his 60s were killed, St-Pierre said. Two of the victims were in serious condition.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Twitter that his heart was with the people of Amqui.
"As we learn more about the tragic events that have taken place, I'm keeping everyone affected in my thoughts," he said.
