A Deadly Christmas Parade
Lord, protect the freedom we still experience in our nation today. Please heal our land and give us wisdom of how to move forward.
WAUKESHA, Wis. – Residents and business owners told Fox News what they experienced when a vehicle plowed through a crowded Christmas parade in downtown Waukesha, Wisconsin, killing five and injuring dozens of others.
“We heard the noise outside first starting when the vehicle must have hit the person,” said Norman Bruce, who owns a book and toy store along the parade route, said. “When I stood up, I could see that there were some band members from [Waukesha] South [High School] laying in the street.”
He told Fox News he opened his shop doors to offer parade-goers protection from the chaos once he saw the destruction outside. . . .
“Two people grabbed one of the band members that was hurt,” Bruce told Fox News. “He was bleeding from his head and [we] brought him in. We got a chair and sat him down and they kept on attending to him.”
Crystal, who lives above the Nice Ash Cigar Bar where she also works as a bartender, said she also brought frightened spectators into the bar. . . .
Crystal said she estimated the SUV was driving roughly 40 mph and that it appeared the driver was “aiming at people and hitting them, and then driving over them.” . . .
Guillermo, a Waukesha local who owns a dress shop downtown, said he didn’t attend the parade, but his family was there to take in the unofficial kickoff to the Christmas season. . . .
Darrell Brooks was arrested and charged with multiple homicide counts over the incident. Brooks, who has a lengthy criminal history, was recently locked up on felony charges, but was released after he posted a $1,000 cash bail earlier this month. . . .
