Police in Quebec believe that a bus driver who crashed his vehicle into a daycare center earlier today, killing two children, did so deliberately but do not know why, they say.

“We think it’s deliberate but we don’t know the motive,” says Pierre Brochet, chief of police in Laval, a suburb of Montreal.

The 51-year-old driver, who has been arrested on suspicion of homicide, had no prior criminal record, he adds.
