Two Gallup police officers and multiple people were reportedly injured Thursday night after a driver drove through the Gallup Inter-Tribal Ceremonial parade.
New Mexico State Police Lt. Mark Soriano said there were no fatalities but couldn’t give an extent of the injuries. He said people were being treated at the scene.
State Police said on Twitter that a driver was in custody.
The agency tweeted around 9:30 p.m. that they were investigating an incident involving “multiple pedestrians” at the parade.
“Multiple people, including two Gallup PD officers, injured and are being treated on scene,” the agency said in its post. “The driver is in custody. More information when available.”
Videos on social media showed a brown SUV being driven on the street as those in the parade scattered out of the way. Another video showed citizens and officers approaching the crashed SUV and pulling at least one man out.
