Miranda Bothwell, spokesperson for Middlesex- London Paramedic Services, said a total of eight patients were taken to hospital. She described the condition of three of the patients at the time of transport to the hospital as “very critical” while the rest were reported to be in serious condition.

A vehicle struck multiple pedestrians in a crash at a major intersection in London , Ont ., on Tuesday night, authorities said , leaving some with life-threatening injuries. Eight people have been taken to hospital, including one person in cardiac arrest, said Miranda Bothwell, a spokesperson for Middlesex London Paramedic "We are working with London Police and their investigation, and are not able to confirm ages at this time while next of kin are being notified," Bothwell said in an email to CBC News. The crash occurred around 6:45 p.m. ET, said London Police Service spokesperson Const.

Investigators have said there was nothing to immediately indicate that what happened was an intentional act.

"We are sending our condolences to absolutely everybody who was involved in last night's incident. Family members, friends, first responders ... it's a tragic incident," Bough said.

Title misleading - ' Police say driver 'intentionally' crashed into Muslim family in London , Ont ., killing 4'. Why aren't we putting proper heading? For context, there was some free-dumb rally in London yesterday where someone (sounding a lot like Chris Sky) outlined that antivaxxers are now threatening to jam four major airports and force flights to divert on November 7th. At what point do we start shutting this kind of thing down before it does serious harm to innocent people?

It appears a vehicle hit another vehicle that was stopped at a traffic light, then potentially struck a second vehicle before continuing through the intersection, police said. It then collided with a streetlight, a small tree and the group of pedestrians, Bough said.

The driver of the original vehicle – a 76-year-old woman – was not among those taken to hospital, Bough said, adding no arrests have been made and no charges have been laid at this time.

It's not confirmed if two vehicles were struck and Bough urged anyone whose vehicle was hit, or who witnessed the crash, to come forward.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau tweeted that he was heartbroken by news of the crash.

"To the family and friends of the child who passed away, know that Canadians across the country are here for you," he wrote. "And to those who were injured, we're wishing you all a fast and full recovery. We’ll be keeping you in our thoughts."

A 20- year - old man was charged Monday with four counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in a hit and run Sunday involving a pickup truck, in what London , Ont ., police believe was a targeted attack on a Muslim family of five. It honestly saddens me as a Muslim that this is happening . No one deserves to die simply because of who they are and it’s heart wrenching to think that a nine year old boy will wake up knowing that his immediate family have all passed away. I don’t know why some SICK people because that’s what they are , think it’s fine to spill innocent blood and to those of you on

Premier Doug Ford, who planned to visit the site of the crash later Wednesday, said his heart "just breaks for the family of the little girl who lost her life."

"The rest of Ontario is grieving with you during this difficult time," he said in a statement. "My thoughts and prayers are also with those who were injured, as I wish for their full recovery."

London Mayor Ed Holder also voiced his grief.

"This is beyond tragic," he said in a tweet. "Our thoughts also remain fixated on those still in hospital as we hope and pray for complete recoveries."

By Wednesday afternoon, a GoFundMe page set up for a mother and daughter hit in the crash had raised more than $4,000.

The fundraiser page said the mother and her eight-year-old daughter are part of a family that moved to London from South Africa last year. It said the girl received some "deep cuts and a broken shoulder blade," while her mother "is in worse condition" in intensive care.

"Please pray for them both and the rest of the individuals involved," the fundraiser page said. "They do not have family here and will need and deserve all of the support they can get."

The crash came roughly six months after a collision in London that killed four members of a Muslim family that police have described as a deliberate, hate-motivated attack.

Nathaniel Veltman, 20, is charged with four counts of first-degree murder and one count of attempted murder in what prosecutors allege was an act of terrorism. His next court appearance is scheduled for Dec. 15.
