Bus driver charged with murder after ramming Quebec nursery

February 9, 2023 — BBC.com reports: “A driver who rammed a bus into a busy nursery in Quebec, killing two children, has been charged with first-degree murder.

Police believe the suspect, Pierre Ny St-Amand, deliberately drove the bus into the nursery during the morning drop-off.
