7 Die, 6 Injure as a Man Deliberately Rams His Land Rover on Pedestrians
A Land Rover SUV driver has been arrested after he intentionally plowed into pedestrians outside the Ozanam Center on Saturday. Multiple victims were seen on the ground following the incident
Seven people were killed and up to six were injured Sunday after they were struck by a vehicle while waiting at a city bus stop outside of a migrant shelter in the border city of Brownsville, Texas, police said.
Brownsville police investigator Martin Sandoval said the crash happened about 8:30 a.m.
Shelter director Victor Maldonado of the Bishop Enrique San Pedro Ozanam Center said he reviewed the shelter’s surveillance video on Sunday morning after receiving a call about the crash.
The city bus stop is across the street from the shelter and is not marked. There was no bench, and people waiting there were sitting along the curb, Maldonado said. He said most of the victims were Venezuelan men.
“What we see in the video is that this SUV, a Range Rover, just ran the light that was about a 100 feet away and just went through the people who were sitting there in the bus stop,” Maldonado said.
