Sup Travellers?! These few weeks haven't been too good for the United States Of America. It seems as though every week something really bad happens. I could recall all the things that happened but i'd prefer not to. Today was another awful day in the US and I got the info for you right here.. Read on.


According to reports from the Bristol Herald Courier, up to 60 people have been injured, some critically, after a man drove a car into a crowd during a parade in southwestern Virginia. Three victims were flown to hospital via helicopter, and another 12 to 15 went by ambulance, after being struck while watching the Hikers Parade at a festival celebrating the Appalachian Trail in the small mountain town of Damascus. Four of the victims are considered seriously injured.

The identity of the driver, and why he drove into the crowd, are still unknown. Witnesses say he was an elderly man one who recognized him says he's 80 and came in from a side street, driving into the crowd for more than 100 feet before stopping. The vehicle was reported to be a green Cadillac. Some victims were trapped underneath the Cadillac. "He was hitting hikers," said a witness, "I saw hikers just go everywhere." Details are still sketchy.

Was the man drunk? I don't know. Did the man have any motive for crashing into the parade or was it just bad driving? I don't know, but what I do know is that my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
