Moments of fear in a Wisconsin town where an SUV swooped into the crowd investing several people who were participating in the traditional local parade that anticipates the holiday season. The toll is currently 5 dead and 40 injured, with the high-wheeled car that it would have run over the victims at high speed. The incident occurred in Waukesha, a town of over 60,000 inhabitants about 30 km west of Milwaukee. Several children are involved in the tragic event. According to initial information provided by local authorities, the police found the abandoned vehicle and arrested a suspect. The causes of the insane gesture are currently unknown.
The SUV would have swept the crowd in the middle of the afternoon: the vehicle would have burst onto the road and accelerated behind a school band and then flee by overwhelming the barriers. A few shots fired, with the police trying to stop the vehicle without success. The area was immediately evacuated, with images showing what happened immediately making the rounds of the web, with several clips posted on social networks. “As we were returning from the parade we saw an SUV whizzing by at full speed along the parade route. Then we heard a loud roar and deafening screams and cries of the people who had been hit by the vehicle “, City councilor Angelito Tenorio, one of the witnesses of the episode, explained to the media. “Then we saw people running away or stop crying, there were many people injured on the ground. Bodies flew everywhere. “ The mayor and the authorities have ordered the closure of schools and some parts of the city to allow investigations to be carried out.
