Witnesses in southwestern Virginia say a car has driven into a crowd at a parade. Several people appeared to be hurt, but the nature of their injuries wasn't immediately known.
It happened Saturday at the Hikers Parade at the Trail Days festival, an annual celebration of the Appalachian Trail in the tiny town of Damascus, population 981.
Four helicopters airlifted victims to area hospitals.
What caused the car to drive into the crowd wasn't immediately known. It appeared to come from a side street, and a thud could be heard.
Witnesses said the car had a handicapped parking sticker. People were yelling "stop!", but the car drove 100ft before before stopping.
"He was hitting hikers," said witness Vickie Harmon. "I saw hikers just go everywhere."
Amanda Puckett, who was watching the parade with her children, ran to the car, where she and others lifted the car off those pinned underneath.
Families wanting to get a look at Marineland's whales, sea lions and dolphins Saturday were greeted by hundreds of protestors.
Saturday marked the first day of the season at the Niagara Falls attraction. The park is often the target of animal rights activists, but protestors now have a fence around the park's parking lot to contend with.
Marineland was offering an opening day discount to counteract the effects of the rally. Three children between ages 5 and 12 could enter the park for the cost of one adult ticket.
Parkdale-High Park NDP MPP Cheri DiNovo and dolphin advocate Richard O'Barry were among the protestors holding sings with messages like "shame" and "shut it down".
Niagara Regional Police were on hand to make sure the demonstration remained peaceful, and to keep traffic flowing.
Marineland has been under the microscope since last spring ex-trainers blew the whistle on alleged mistreatment of animals ...

The Toronto Zoo's two new stars can finally meet their fans.
An exhibit featuring giant pandas on loan from China officially has opened to the public after two days of private tours for media, politicians and select zoo members.
Da Mao and his prospective mate Er Shun arrived to great fanfare in March but have been hidden from view while quarantined.
Pandas are solitary creatures, so they're housed separately, but will be temporarily brought together for mating season each year.
The pair will remain at the zoo for five years before heading to the Calgary Zoo for another five.
Their stay is being touted by Canadian and Chinese officials as a sign that ties between the two countries are getting stronger.
