Social media was ripe with stories from witnesses that this started as a hit and run (possibly road rage) near the Save On on Young Road just moments before the stabbing.
Apparently one vehicle chased after another vehicle after the cyclist was hit, colliding with it at the Save On parking lot entrance at Yale Road.
Second: Around 4PM, Police were on the scene at Young Road and Railway Avenue. A pedestrian was struck and killed by train. The death is under investigation.
