Virginia Parade, 60 Hurt after Car Drives Into Crowd

Up to 60 people were injured when a car drove into a parade in a small Virginia mountain town.

Witnesses immediately ran over to lift up the 1997 Cadillac to help free a woman trapped underneath it.

Three of those hurt were airlifted to hospital by helicopter. Another 12 to 15 were taken by ambulance and the rest were treated at the scene by paramedics.

Washington County director of emergency management Pokey Harris said no fatalities had been reported and that the injuries ranged from critical to superficial.
