Mexican monster truck kills 8, hurts dozens when vehicle hits crowd
An official says an out-of-control monster truck has shot into a crowd of spectators at a Mexican air show, killing at least eight, including three children and hurting dozens more.
Carlos Gonzalez, spokesman for the Chihuahua state prosecutors' office, said the driver appeared to have lost control of the truck after leaping an obstacle during a demonstration at the ``Extreme Aeroshow'' on Saturday.
Investigators now say it looks like the driver of a monster truck couldn't release the gas pedal.
He said the accident killed a child and five adults and seriously hurt 40 people.
Gonzalez said prosecutors were looking into the possibility of a mechanical failure that left the driver unable to release the gas pedal.
The air show was cancelled after the accident.
