Two toddlers were murdered when a car ploughed into a crowd at a drag race circuit.
A vehicle collided with spectators at a drag race in Texas, killing two young boys and wounding dozens more. The unfortunate accident is currently being investigated by the police. Two small children were killed when a car off the track and smashed into the audience at a drag race.
On Saturday afternoon in Texas, two boys, ages six and eight, were murdered and eight others were injured in a non-prep drag race.
According to witnesses, the vehicle ‘fishtailed’ after crossing the finish line and crashed into onlookers nearby, causing others to flee the scene.
The accident was caused by a vehicle competing in the “Airport Race Wars 2” track competition, which crashed into parked cars and struck spectators at an airport in the Southern state.
Following the tragedy, the Kerrville Police Department issued a news release confirming the unfortunate conclusion.
“The crash resulted in two fatalities, a six-year-old male child who died at the scene and an eight-year-old male child who was brought to Peterson Regional Medical Center in Kerrville and pronounced deceased,” the statement continued.
Several persons were harmed as a result of the authorities revealing that the race was taking place at Kerrville Aviation, 1875 Airport Loop at Kerrville-Kerr County Airport.
A 26-year-old guy is in a “unknown state,” while a 27-year-old female is in a “non-life threatening serious condition.”
In addition to the 34-year-old male driver, who was transferred to San Antonio Medical Center and has been reported as “stable condition” since, a 46-year-old female was also transported to a neighboring hospital and is battling for her life.
Other bystanders were treated on the spot and were later released.
According to the press release, “Kerrville Police are investigating the collision.” “This inquiry is active and ongoing,” authorities said. As more information becomes available, we will offer updates.” “The car had fishtailed into fans after it passed the finish line,” Brittany Lehman, a racing fan on the scene, told The Kerrville Daily Times. When they saw the crash “followed by black smoke and people running,” the spectator and her husband were cheering on the competing automobiles. Brittany told the local television, “They said, ‘Get your children out of here.'”
The no-prep racing driver, who has yet to be recognized, lost control of his engine and veered off the runway, killing race fans in the process.
