As people were celebrating France’s annual Bastille Day, a truck rammed into revelers, swerving down the road for 1.2 miles. The driver was later killed. Witnesses reported gunshots early on, but these accounts have not been confirmed since fireworks are usually a part of Bastille Day activities.

Another hashtag, #PortesOuvertesNice began trending immediately after the attack, as a way to help people find shelter. Facebook activated it’s Safety Check application for the 18th time this year, for those in Nice to indicate that they are safe.
