A car crashed into a crowd, killing two people and injuring 19 others.
Police rushed to where at least two people died and others were injured Sunday night after several vehicles drove into a crowd in the US city of Lincoln, Nebraska.
Two female victims were pronounced dead at the scene and 19 others were hospitalized, the Lincoln Police Department said.
The accident occurred around 52nd and O Street. The entire area from 48th to 56th Streets is closed in both directions and residents have been urged to avoid the area.
Videos show a huge fire erupting from the wrecked car near the intersection of South 52nd Street and O Street in front of Barnes & Noble’s Bookstore as people trip and flee the area.
Initial reports suggest the fatal crash happened after a car reportedly ran a red light, hit another vehicle and then the two cars went out of control, hitting people on the pavement.
