At least 8 people have died and dozens of others were injured this past Saturday, October 5, 2013, when a monster truck plowed through the audience of a monster truck show in Chihuahua, Mexico.
Hundreds of people gathered in Chihuahua, Mexico this weekend to watch a monster truck show. One of the monster trucks performed several jumps and maneuvers when the truck became damaged and sustained an apparent mechanical malfunction. Witnesses report that the driver of the truck struck his head on the steering wheel and slumped over it before plowing the truck through hundreds of audience members.
Eight individuals died in the monster truck accident, and 12 others are in area hospitals in critical condition. Dozens of others have been injured as well. The driver of the monster truck has been arrested by Chihuahua Police, as the investigation of the tragic accident is underway
The public has expressed outrage at the fact that the monster truck show appears to have lacked any barricades or other safety measures to protect the crowd from a possible runaway truck. The Chihuahua Governor Cesar Duarte Juarez has stated that his office, which co-sponsored the monster truck show, will conduct a full public investigation on the apparent lack of safety measures at the show.
Juarez has also declared a three-day mourning period for Chihuahua out of respect for the victims and their families.
