From Facebook:

I was at the hospital when the accident happened. Heard the Code Blue on the PA, went outside thinking it would be awhile and watched the ambulances start to arrive. A doctor and a nurse informed a packed ER waiting room that 4 were killed, and 8 traumas were on the way to hospital. I saw 5 arrive. And 1 ambulance come but didn’t take anyone out. The road was blocked off at Richmond Drive all the way to Avonmore Road. You could see the activity just off of Avonmore road. Scary Shit. Article says 2 died and Nick baker as well. I take it there was 3

and:

The 1st ambulance had a male, I think, and he was in cardiac arrest. 2nd ambulance had a female, conscious but injured. 3rd ambulance had a toddler, a baby (few weeks old, maybe a month) and a Mom. They all walked out of the ambulance Thank God
