TORONTO (AP) — The president of Invesco Canada says one of the financial company’s employees was among those killed in when a van plowed into pedestrians in Toronto.
Peter Intraligi says the company’s “thoughts and prayers” were with “all those impacted by this tragic event.”
The company had earlier issued a statement saying two of its employees were affected.
A new statement from Intraligi says “I can now confirm that unfortunately one of our employees has succumbed to her injuries.” He added: “Out of respect for her and her family, we will not be providing any further comments.”
Police are trying to determine why a driver plowed a rented van along a crowded sidewalk in Toronto, killing 10 people and injuring 15 in what many said seemed a deliberate attack.
