Monster Truck Plows Into Crowd At Mexican Air Show, Reportedly Killing 13

  • Rick Chandler

The place is Chihuahua, Mexico, at something called the “Extreme Aeroshow”, where one of the attractions was Monster trucks jumping over things. But things went horribly wrong on Saturday when the truck went out of control and plowed into the crowd, with reports of 13 people killed and up to 70 injured.

The driver, who some witnesses say may have hit his head just before the accident, was arrested at the scene.

Some witnesses said the driver appeared to have hit his head on the interior of the truck as he drove over the old cars, with at least two reporting seeing his helmet come off before the massive vehicle drove into the crowd of terrified spectators, who tried to flee.

“I fell over, and when I turned around I saw the tire very close. It hit me and threw me to the other side,” Jesus Manuel Ibarra, 41, said as he was treated for injuries to his arm and hip.

It’s kind of hard to tell from the video, but the crowd seems insanely close to the truck to begin with. Best place to watch this kind of thing is from the top of a nearby hill … or on TV.
