Or the truck driver in Toronto:
The Toronto van attack was a domestic terrorist vehicle-ramming attack that occurred on April 23, 2018, when a rented van was driven along Yonge Street through the North York City Centre business district in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The driver, Alek Minassian, targeted pedestrians, killing 11 and injuring 15, some critically.[3][4] The incident is the deadliest vehicle-ramming attack in Canadian history.[5][6][7][8][9]
