A driver crashed his monster truck into attendees of an automative exhibition, according to multiple Dutch media reports. At least three people are dead, one might be a child, and dozens of other adults and children are injured.

The horrific incident occurred in Haaksbergen, Netherlands, and at least 40 victims were being treated by emergency personnel after the monster truck driver seemed to lose control of his vehicle and drive into assembled attendees, according to the NL Times:

That sucks, kinda crazy how lax safety standards are in other counties.

That's pretty tragic. I wouldn't have been comfortable having my kid that close with out a barrier though.
