Father charged after van slams into teens, including daughter

‘The father of a teenaged girl faces attempted murder charges for allegedly slamming his van into six people, including his daughter, outside a Scarborough, Ont., high school on Friday.

The six were sitting in a park near Stephen Leacock Collegiate Institute, near Birchmount Road and Sheppard Avenue when a van came speeding towards them, said police.

The daughter, her boyfriend and a friend of the couple were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses allege the father was angry over the daughter’s relationship with her boyfriend.

“This was not an unintentional collision,” said Sgt. James Cassells of traffic services with Toronto police.’
