Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan employee injured
Anne Marie D'Amico, an employee at Invesco (IVZ) Canada, was identified as one of 10 people killed when a rental van plowed through pedestrians on a sidewalk Monday along a busy street in north Toronto.
Also, an unidentified employee of the C$189.5 billion ($150.2 billion) Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan, Toronto, was among the 15 people injured.
"Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with all those impacted by this tragic event," said Peter Intraligi, president, Invesco Canada, said in a statement. "I can now confirm that unfortunately one of our employees has succumbed to her injuries. Out of respect for her and her family, we will not be providing any further comments."
Ms. D'Amico worked at the Invesco Canada office on Yonge Street in Toronto's Willowdale neighborhood. The van had careened down the sidewalk and struck Ms. D'Amico and others, leaving another 15 people injured.
In a separate statement, Ontario Teachers said, "We have been able to account for all Ontario Teachers' employees and have identified one employee who has been injured. We have been in regular contact with his family and are doing everything we can to ensure he and his family have the support and assistance they need during this challenging time, while being respectful of their privacy. Our hearts and thoughts are with everyone who has been affected."
Officials at Ontario Teachers would not identify the employee.
OTPP's offices are also on Yonge Street, near the area police believe the van first rode onto the sidewalk.
Alek Minassian, 25, of suburban Toronto, was arrested in connection with the crash. Police were still searching for a motive, declining to provide further details.
