EDMONTON—A man faces attempted murder charges after witnesses say a truck deliberately was crashed into an Edmonton gas station store when the driver was told he had to pre-pay for fuel.
Police say a Ford F-150 smashed through the front window of the Petro-Canada on Wednesday and struck two employees, pinning both under the truck.
They suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries, and were being treated in hospital.
Officers said they were told a man then got out of the truck and assaulted two other people, who were treated for less-serious injuries.
Police noted the driver left the area but then returned to the store, where he was arrested.
Steven Cloutier, 38, faces four counts of attempted murder, as well as charges of assault with a weapon, aggravated assault, dangerous driving causing bodily harm, and assault.
