Carnage After Car Rams Dutch Royal Motorcade

Royal Motorcade:Four Dead As Car Hits Crowd

Four people are reported to have been killed and several hurt in The Netherlands after a car careered into spectators watching a royal motorcade.


People were flung through the air after the car swerved across police railings
A photographer said the car appeared to be deliberately driving at high speed toward an open bus carrying Queen Beatrix and her family in the western Dutch city of Apeldoorn.
Cynthia Boll said she saw about 20 people "flying through the air" after the black car swerved across police railings, where crowds of people were waiting to see the queen pass.
The car slammed into a monument. Video footage showed police removing a man from the vehicle and putting him into an ambulance.
The royal bus was not hit and no one in the queen's entourage was injured.
The motorcade was part of celebrations for the annual national holiday of Queen's Day.
