    really wish I hadn't seen the image of the mangled pram and pram seat stuck on the car bonnet. Can't get it out of my head. Thinking of all the people involved.

    There are those who would be upset if the police had not ended the chase and the chase resulted in innocent deaths.Praying for victims and their grieving families and those injured.

    Three people, including a young child, have been killed and a number of others injured after a man allegedly drove into pedestrians in Melbourne's CBD.

    At least 20 people have been treated for various injuries after a maroon car ploughed into the crowd just after 1.30pm.

    Police said the incident is related to a stabbing in Windsor in inner Melbourne earlier on Friday and is not terror-related.

    Police said they believed the man was involved in a stabbing at 2:15am in Windsor, where he allegedly attacked his brother.

    Commissioner Ashton said the suspect was known to police and was also charged over an incident last weekend.

    "There is an extensive family violence history involved. He has come to our attention on many occasions in the past. We have mental health and drug-related issues in the background of this particular person," he said.
    "He has been coming to our attention more recently over recent days in relation to assaults, family violence-related assaults."

    Where I work was on lock down due to this craziness! I'm pretty sure we will find out ice is a factor here!
    This guy literally drove 60 km/h down streets that are for pedestrians and trams only.
    Thoughts are with all those who lost loved ones

    My friend in Melbourne, who has been in hospital for a few days, writes to say it's the same one seven of the injured plus the suspect have been admitted to.

    Prayers of healing and comfort to those in hospital.

    Sending prayers of comfort and love to the loved ones of those killed.

    So unnecessary. Saddens my heart.
