Dutch Car Kills Five

A Dutch driver killed four bystanders and wounded 13 others in a premeditated attack on the Dutch royal family today. During a parade, the car plowed through police barriers and into the crowd. According to the Associated Press, “The speeding car, already dented apparently from catapulting bystanders into the air, passed within a few meters of the open-topped bus carrying Queen Beatrix and her family down a parade route, then smashed into a stone monument.” The driver, badly injured and still in his damaged car, admitted to targeting the queen.
