A car has plowed through a hikers parade in Virginia, USA. Between 50-60 injuries were reported.
Witnesses say an elderly man was behind the wheel when the car accelerated and struck the crowd. He claims he has no memory of it. Police are investigating whether he suffered a medical problem.
It occurred at the annual Trail Days festival held in Damascus near the Tennessee state line. A young eyewitness described the moment the car hit the parade.
“We heard screams behind us, and he sort of pushed us out of the way of it, and all of us, we all looked back and saw…misery”
Mayor Jack McCrady announced that a donation fund was being set up for the injured, some of whom have no medical insurance.
