Toronto police say a driver is in custody after a crash claimed two people’s lives on Sunday evening.
Insp. Stacey Davis says a vehicle reportedly sped into an intersection and mounted a curb, striking three pedestrians.
She says paramedics took the victims to hospital, where two of them died and a third is being treated for a head injury.
Davis says a driver, who was also taken to hospital, is in custody on suspicion of drunk driving.
She says witnesses to the crash helped the wounded before emergency services arrived.
The police investigation is ongoing.
