Man drove into pedestrians in Melbourne killing three and wounding many


One of the dead was a young child. Four children, including a three-month-old baby, were taken to Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital. “We witnessed about half a dozen people that ricocheted off the car one way or another. I saw one person fly up almost roof level of the car as they got thrown up against one of the retail stores,” a witness said to the media. Video from another witness showed the driver shouting at people and hanging his arm out the window before driving into pedestrians. Police rammed the car and shot the 26-year-old driver in the arm, before dragging him from the vehicle and arresting him. Melbourne is currently hosting the Australian Open tennis grand slam and is packed with thousands of extra tourists. The tennis tournament continued as normal.
