Car ploughs into Christmas parade
November 22, 2021 - Five people were killed and more than 40 injured after a car ploughed into a Christmas parade in the U.S. state of Wisconsin.
A red sport SUV drove at speed into crowds in a “tragic incident” in Waukesha west of Milwaukee on Sunday afternoon, the town’s police chief, Dan Thompson, told a media conference on Sunday night.
The parade in Waukesha - a community of about 72,000 people - is held every year on the Sunday before Thanksgiving, and includes fancy dress, dancers and marching bands. This year's theme was "comfort and joy".
