A car slammed into a crowd on Sunday that was participating in a Christmas parade in Wisconsin (USA), and left “some dead,” according to the police chief, Dan Thompson, without giving any details.
The event occurred in the afternoon in the town of Waukesha, when a car jumped through the police control and rushed towards the people who participated in this parade.
According to a witness told the television network CNN, there were several wounded lying on the ground unable to move.
The Waukesha Police Chief said the “suspicious vehicle” was recovered after the ramming and that investigators had one person detained.
“Very tragic incident, very chaotic. There are no other threats involved, “Thompson said.
In social networks there are some videos that apparently show the aforementioned car heading at high speed towards where the parade was being held. In one of these videos you can hear shots directed at the car when the police cordon is jumped
Local reporter Courtney Sisk posted a video on Twitter after a witness informed her of the event.
“The witnesses who spoke on the phone told me that several members of the ‘dancing grandmothers’ were beaten and do not move“, said.
Angelito Tenorio, a candidate for treasurer from the state of Wisconsin, said he had just finished marching in the parade with his family and friends and was walking back to Main Street.
“As we walked back between the buildings, we saw a crossover SUV speeding along the parade route. And then we heard a loud roar, and only deafening screams and screams from the people, “said Tenorio.
He added: “It all happened so fast.”
The vehicle in question is reportedly a maroon van.
