WATCH: SUV Plows Through Christmas Parade 50 Miles from Kenosha

In yet another example of the reckless violence that has overwhelmed our nation in recent months, a tragedy like no other has befallen the city of Waukesha, Wisconsin, just 50 miles away from the already-embattled city of Kenosha.

The horrific incident took place on Sunday evening, during an annual Christmas parade.

A treasured rite of the holiday season turned into a scene of bloody, deadly mayhem late Sunday afternoon as a vehicle plowed into the Waukesha Christmas Parade, killing some and leaving more than 20 people injured, authorities said.

There were some fatalities but a figure was not released as authorities sought to notify families.

Eleven adults and 12 children were ferried to local hospitals. Others were taken by friends and family. Children’s Wisconsin hospital said it had 15 patients and no fatalities.

Waukesha Mayor Shawn Reilly called the incident a “horrible and senseless act.”

Video of the terrifying incident was soon circulating on social media, but we must warn you, the following scenes are graphic in nature.

Details about the driver and the casualties are still fluid as of this writing, but authorities have suggested that several are dead and several more injured as of midnight on Sunday.
