Quebec driver to appear in court in ramming deaths:


A 38year-old Canadian man is facing two charges of dangerous driving causing death after allegedly ramming a pickup truck through pedestrian­s in an eastern Canada town, killing two men and injuring nine people. Police declined to comment on a possible motive for the incident Monday afternoon in the Quebec province town of Amqui, about 220 miles northeast of Quebec City. A senior Canadian official ruled out terrorism. Court documents signed Tuesday by a justice of the peace identify the accused as Steeve Gagnon, 38, of Amqui. Quebec provincial police have said their investigat­ion suggests the driver swerved from one side of the road to the other over a considerab­le distance to hit victims at random.
