Multiple people dead and 28 injured after SUV ploughs into Christmas parade, sending bodies flying



A car traveling at high speed ploughed into a Christmas parade in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, killing at least five people and injuring 40 others, including at least 12 children.



Terrifying video posted to social media shows a speeding red SUV ram into a large crowd marching in the middle of the street during the annual Christmas parade in Waukesha.







Another video shows the speeding SUV narrowly miss a young girl who was dancing in the street. Several witnesses reported seeing small children laying on the ground after they were hit by the car.







Despite earlier reports of gunshots, police said they do not believe the driver was armed.



A person of interest is now in custody, according to police.



11 adults, including a priest, and 12 children were rushed to six different hospitals in the area, the head of the fire department said. They include several elderly women who were part of a "Dancing Grannies" float and members of a schoolgirls' dance team, according to reports.







Children's Wisconsin, a pediatric hospital in Milwaukee, said it was treating 15 patients who were hurt in the parade. The hospital said there were no fatalities as of late Sunday night.
