Nineteen Injured in Melbourne Car Strike
“It was just one after the other.” So said a witness to today’s car attack in Melbourne, where a white SUV drove directly into a busy crosswalk and injured 19, including at least one child. It’s the second car attack of 2017 for Melbourne, after one in January that killed six people. Police say it’s too soon to determine a motive or say whether terrorism was a factor, but two people, the driver and another man, are in police custody. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull tweeted his “thoughts & prayers” for the victims and rescuers.
