Australian Melbourne’s authorities canceled the Christmas light projections after car crashed into pedestrians, Daily Mail reported.
“Following the distressing event that occurred on Flinders Street, we’ve cancelled tonight’s Christmas Projections across all sites in the city and Docklands. Our thoughts go out to everyone who was impacted,” Melboune’s administration tweeted.
The car crashed into a crowd in Melbourne on December 21, injuring at least 14 people. The Police are investigating the incident. The driver of the vehicle and a second person were arrested.
Four pedestrians hit by the vehicle were fighting for their lives in hospital tonight local time and 15 were in a stable condition.
The pre-school aged child was not in a critical condition but remained in the Royal Children’s Hospital.
Seven victims were in the Royal Melbourne Hospital, including two in a critical condition.
Nine people were taken to The Alfred hospital, including two who were critical.
Two people were in St Vincent’s Hospital, including the driver.
Police said the case was a “quarantined” incident and had not increased the risk at major upcoming events like the Boxing Day test between Australia and England next week.
Earlier, England Cricket had tweeted: “Following the Flinders Street incident in Melbourne, all England players and management have been accounted for and are safe.”
