Authorities release footage of Waukesha SUV incident

A video posted on the City of Waukesha's Facebook page showed a red sport utility vehicle speeding through the parade, missing participants before police vehicles raced after it.

Another video later obtained from an eyewitness by Reuters showed emergency services assisting injured people at the scene just a few seconds after the car plowed into the crowd.

Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson said a person of interest was in custody and the suspect's vehicle had been recovered after the incident in the town, about 20 miles (32 km) west of Milwaukee.

Authorities said they had taken 11 adults and 12 children to six area hospitals, with more transported to hospitals by family and friends.
