At least five people were killed and more than 40 injured, many of them minors, in a run-over during a Christmas parade in the United States state of Wisconsin, according to police officials.

This Sunday at around 4:40 p.m. (local time), a red vehicle exploded in celebration of a Christmas parade in downtown Waukesha, driving dozens of people on board.

The city’s police department explained in a post on its social network that it has detained a man suspected of being the author of the mass outrage.

In addition, he pointed out that many people have traveled by their own means to hospitals in the area, so the figures for the injured and the dead may differ as more information is gathered.

White House sources told CNN that US President Joe Biden has been informed of the incident.
