SHOCKING: Raw Footage Shows Monster Truck Slamming Into Spectators, Killing Eight

A monster truck killed eight and wounded at least eighty during a truck rally in Mexico on Saturday, after the driver appeared to lose control of the vehicle, sending it speeding into a large group of spectators.

Video shows the truck leaping a dirt ramp and bouncing off the roofs of lesser cars. A spokesman for the Chihuahua state police office said the driver may have lost control of the truck after hitting his head during this demonstration. Witnesses reported seeing the driver hit his head when the truck bounced, knocking his helmet off.

Other witnesses described the chaos of the accident. “I fell over, and when I turned around I saw the tire very close. It hit me and threw me to the other side,” said one spectator, who suffered arm and hip injuries.
