A 71-year-old driver of a pick-up truck drove into a crowd of 25 to 30 people leaving a pre-wedding celebration in British Columbia over the weekend. Nineteen people were injured and six people were killed
The wedding crowd was walking along an unlit, rural road that was lined with cars. They were part of a traditional Indian procession celebrating the upcoming wedding.
The mother of one of the bride's friends told Sky News, "They had drums in the front. They were going to have a van in the front, a blinking van, but it got there a little late."
The bride and groom were not among the injured and were going ahead with the planned wedding.
A man told how he was sitting in his backyard listening to the music of the procession when it stopped all of a sudden, and the next thing he heard were a lot of sirens, followed by a couple of helicopters flying in.
Three men and three women were killed in the crash, ages ranging from teens into their fifties.
A four-month-old baby was among the many injured.
The driver was questioned and released by the police. There was no indication of alcohol or drugs involved. The man's truck was taken to be checked out mechanically.
