Two youngsters died after a metropolis bus crashed right into a daycare middle

A horrifying situation unfolded when a city bus crashed into a daycare center and two young children lost their lives as a result of the tragedy.

The ordeal happened Wednesday morning in Laval, Quebec — a Canadian city about an hour from Montreal.

According to CBC News, a bus on the city’s public transit system crashed into the daycare center around 8:30 a.m. Two children died as a result. Also, six children suffered injuries and were treated at nearby hospitals, although they are all reportedly in stable condition.

Witness believes crime was premeditated, says driver was ‘in another world’

Remarkably, he shared, “From what I’ve seen, it wasn’t an accident.”

The witness also talked about how the driver started acting like a fool after the collision.

“He opens the door. He took off all his clothes. He was completely naked. We don’t know why he did it. We fell for him. We tried to subdue him.”

Ben Chaabane went on to describe the driver as “in another world,” noting that the whole experience was “a nightmare.”

“It was a nightmare. It’s horrible. He wouldn’t stop screaming. He didn’t say a word.”

The driver had been employed by the city for 10 years prior to the daycare incident

Stéphane Boyer, the mayor of Laval, noted that the driver – identified as Pierre Ny St-Amand – had been employed by the city’s transport department for 10 years. She also pointed out that the investigation is ongoing.

“There is a hypothesis that this was a premeditated act, but it needs to be confirmed by the investigation.”

According to The Independent, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said the tragedy was “the worst nightmare imaginable for any parent”.

The suspect was charged with first-degree muder

At present, Pierre Ny St-Amand is reportedly facing two counts of first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault and assault with a weapon.
