A van plowed into pedestrians on a sidewalk at a busy intersection in Toronto on Monday afternoon, killing nine people and injuring 16, police said. The driver of the van has been taken into custody, according to police. Authorities did not immediately identify the driver. An eyewitness, Diego DeMatos, told NBC News that he saw several pedestrians on the ground, surrounded by crowds of 'screaming and crying' people. 'The driver was swerving back and forth between the sidewalk and the road,' said DeMatos, 23. 'I saw where the van hit two people and then kept going.'
