Monster truck slams into crowd

‘A monster truck performing stunts in front of an auto parts store veered into a crowd of about 100 spectators Thursday, injuring at least nine people before breaking through a wooden fence and stopping on nearby railroad tracks, officials said.

Three adults and six children were taken to Kishwaukee Community Hospital in DeKalb.

Two of them, a mother and her 4-year-old daughter, were in serious condition and were transported to trauma hospitals in Rockford, said a Kishwaukee hospital spokeswoman. Six others were treated and released, and the remaining patient was in good condition Thursday evening, she said.’
