Waukesha's mayor and police chief are providing reporters a brief statement about the parade incident: Mayor Shawn Reilly: "Tonight was a traumatic situation for the city of Waukesha. We don't have all the details. We can't provide details at this point."
Waukesha School Board member Corey Montiho said his daughter's dance team was hit by the SUV. "They were pom-poms and shoes and spilled hot chocolate everywhere. I had to go from one crumpled body to the other to find my daughter. My wife and two daughters were almost hit."
"Please pray for everybody. Please pray. My family is safe but many are not. I held one little girls head in my hand, she was seizing and she was bleeding out of her ears. I held her mother as she collapsed. Please pray," Montiho told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
