Christmas Parade car attack in Waukesha, Wisconsin

Five people were killed and over 40 were injured after a vehicle drove into a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday afternoon.

Officials say that these numbers may change as an investigation into the crash is ongoing and some people have self-transported to area hospitals.

The incident took place when a red SUV drove through a series of barricades and drove into the crowded parade route on Main Street around 4:39 p.m.

A person of interest with regards to the incident is in custody but it is not yet established whether the person was the driver of the SUV.

Children are among the injured, officials say.

A Waukesha police officer discharged their weapon as he attempted to stop the SUV driver, and no bystanders were hit by the officer’s gunfire.

Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers lamented the incident and said that he and his wife are praying for Waukesha and the people affected “by this senseless act”.

It is yet to be known at this time whether the incident was an act of terrorism. Nevertheless, the officials have ensured that the affected area is now safe and secure.
