A monster truck accident in the Netherlands has killed at least three people and injured 15 more. The incident took place on Sunday, after the driver lost control of his vehicle and tore through a crowd of people who were watching in the audience.
Haaksbergen mayor Hans Gerritsen told local media a child was among the three people killed.
Another 15 people were injured.
Emergency teams treated some of the wounded at the scene, while hospitals in the area reportedly called in extra staff to treat those more seriously hurt.
According to national newspaper De Telegraaf, the truck was 1500 horsepower.
One of the show’s organisers, Geerlof Kanis, told local broadcaster RTV Oost that safety fences were set up at the event kept onlookers at a sufficient distance from the vehicle.
He said it is possible truck’s gas pedal got stuck or its brakes failed.
