Monster Truck Plows Into Crowd, Leaves 3 Dead And 15 Injured in Netherlands (VIDEO)
A monster truck crashed into a crowd in the eastern Netherlands town of Haaksbergen on Sunday, killing three and injuring at least 15 others.
The souped-up truck with tractor wheels was supposed to simply ride over a number of parked cars during the event, which is held annually, but the driver seemed to have lost control, and veered off to the side, plowing into and knocking over a guardrail before slamming into the section for spectators.
Hans Gerritsen, the mayor of Haaksbergen, said at a press conference that three people died, including a child, and more than a dozen more onlookers were injured.
It’s believed that the driver’s brakes failed or that the gas pedal somehow got stuck.
The truck driver, whose name has not been released yet, is being question by the local police.
As the truck begins to lose control, many spectators can be seen in the footage yelling and running away.
It’s pretty awful.
Video of the horrible incident — that was posted to social media — is below.
