Canada police say driver that hit pedestrians in custody

TORONTO (AP) - A van apparently jumped a curb Monday in a busy intersection in Toronto and struck eight to 10 people and fled the scene before it was found and the driver was taken into custody, Canadian police said.

It was not immediately clear what caused the van to strike the pedestrians in a busy intersection in the north-central part of the city. Police did not immediately identify the driver.

"At this point it's too early to tell what if any motive there was. We are also unable right now to tell the extent or the number of persons injured," Toronto police spokeswoman Meaghan Gray said.

Toronto paramedic spokeswoman Kim McKinnon said first responders were on scene treating multiple patients, but wouldn't confirm the number or severity of injuries.

Police shut down the Yonge and Finch intersection following the Monday afternoon incident and Toronto's transit agency said it has suspended service on the subway line running through the area.

The incident occurred as Cabinet ministers from the major industrial countries were gathered in Canada to discuss a range of international issues in the run-up to the G7 meeting near Quebec City in June.

Monday: Wet commute across Central Florida

The week started off wet across Central Florida, and showers and thunderstorms will continue through the afternoon as a cold front approaches the area.

 

The clouds are keeping the temperatures between the upper 70s and mid-80s during the early afternoon, with cooler air along the coast. Humidity is high, with the winds mainly from the southwest, making conditions feel warm and really muggy.

There is a deep layer of moisture along the entire peninsula, which will continue to provide instability that will trigger more showers and storms through the afternoon and into the early evening.

 

The winds will keep the heaviest thunderstorms confined to the coastal regions. Rainfall could reach 2.5 inches in the Volusia/Brevard areas. Inland cities could receive between a quarter to three-quarters of an inch through the evening.

 

Showers and storms will gradually wind down after sunset. Much drier air will begin to filter in across Central Florida starting mid-morning Tuesday and the skies will also gradually clear out.

Make sure to stay weather aware. Remember that lightning can strike 10 miles away from the base of a thunderstorm. If you hear thunder you are close enough to get struck by lightning. Stay indoors away from doors and windows.

AFTER THE COLD FRONT

Although the cold front will not bring a significant decrease in temperatures, it will feel nice through the entire workweek. High temperatures between 82-84 degrees and lows in the low-60s, just slightly below-average for this time of the year.

Orlando lawyer who helped Puerto Rican law students to lead parade

An Orlando lawyer is helping displaced law students from Puerto Rico finish their studies.

It is just one of the many efforts that Anthony Suarez said he felt called to do after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. 

"I just have to give back. That's just what I believe God has called me to do," said Suarez. 

Special Section: Crisis in Puerto Rico

He found a way to help 32 students get out of the University of Puerto Rico law school and enroll them in other law schools across the U.S.  

The students were able to keep up their studies despite the hurricane setback.

His efforts did not go unnoticed.

Other lawyers in Puerto Rico started calling him, asking for a jobs.

While Suarez did not have the space to hire, he did something bigger.

After digging into Florida law, he found a rule that would allow him to help other displaced lawyers in need of a job.   "Rule 13 allows that if you have a nonprofit certified legal services corporation, you can bring in lawyers from other jurisdictions to work in the state of Florida while they prepare for the bar exam," Suarez said.

That's exactly what he did.

He opened two locations, one in Miami and one in Orlando.

So far, 15 lawyers from Puerto Rico have begun in Florida. They started taking cases just two weeks ago.

Suarez was asked to be the grand marshal in Orlando’s Puerto Rican Day parade, something he said takes him back to his childhood.

"For me, it happens to be extremely special because I had the honor in 1956 to march in the very first Puerto Rican Day parade New York,” he said. 

Suarez will be leading the parade as participants march down Orange Avenue on Saturday.

This year's theme is "New Beginnings,” as many Puerto Rican evacuees start over after the hurricane.
