More than 20 people were injured Sunday when an SUV drove down a holiday parade route in downtown Waukesha, Wisconsin, on Sunday, police said.
Waukesha Police Chief Daniel Thompson said at a Sunday night press conference that authorities were “looking into” a person of interest, the vehicle had been recovered, and there was no ongoing threat.
“The scene is now safe,” the chief said.
The reason was not yet known, and the incident was under investigation.
Mayor Shawn Reilly said at the press conference that it was “a traumatic situation for the city of Waukesha.”
Scott Greger, a Waukesha resident, said he witnessed the vehicle strike someone, continue, and then hit a float.
