At least 20 people were injured Sunday in a mass-casualty event as a car plowed into the Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, an hour’s drive from the city of Kenosha where Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted last week on murder charges.
Article by Joe Kovacs from our news partners at WND News Center.
A red SUV was seen speeding through police barricades and striking a number of people shortly before 5 p.m.
This was recorded from the City of Waukesha’s Facebook account, which was streaming the parade.

Reports say shots were fired at the popular annual event, and it is not known at this time if the incident had anything to do with the not guilty verdict for Rittenhouse.

Police said the suspect’s vehicle “was recovered” and a “person of interest” was identified but not named, according to WISN-TV. The police chief would not say if that person was in custody.

Corey Montiho, a School District of Waukesha board member, was by a restaurant when he heard his daughter’s youth dance team was struck.
“There were pom-poms and shoes and spilled hot chocolate everywhere,” he told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I had to go from one crumpled body to the other to find my daughter. My wife and two daughters were almost hit. Please pray for everybody. Please pray. My family is safe but many are not. I held one little girl’s head in my hand, she was seizing and she was bleeding out of her ears. I held her mother as she collapsed. Please pray.”
Angelito Tenorio, a West Allis alderman who is running for Wisconsin state treasurer, told the paper he had just finished marching in the parade with his family and friends.
“As we were walking back in between the buildings that we saw an SUV crossover, just put the pedal to the metal and just zooming full speed along the parade route. And then we heard a loud bang, and just deafening cries and screams from people who are who are struck by the vehicle,” Tenorio said. “And then, and then we saw people running away or stopping crying, and there, there are people on the ground who looked like they’d been hit by the vehicle.”
He added, “It just all happened so fast.”
A reporter on scene indicated the crowd could hear thuds as the vehicle rammed people, leaving many on the ground. The reporter noted police told parade watchers to get off the street and head into stores.
Ashlee Coronado, a 12-year-old student, was at the event with her mother.
“We were excited to see the truck with the fire and the hot air with it,” she told the Journal Sentinel. “We always get excited for it because it is cold that that warms us. Then right then, a red (vehicle) drove past me and my cousins. He was going very fast and hit a gentleman. At first I thought he was a part of the parade. And then I thought this is real. We were all screaming. We were not even two feet away.”
Kimberlee Coronado said: “We grabbed our kids and got to our cars and got out of there. It was very scary.”
“I am in shock,” said Alderman Don Paul Browne, who had marched in the event. “This parade draws people from all over, even Jefferson County. I am numb. It is pretty upsetting.”
“My inclination was to try to help, but that may be the last thing the police would need. The best I can do is be a source for people. We have to worry about shootings now. It breaks my heart.”
Gov. Tony Evers tweeted: “Kathy and I are praying for Waukesha tonight and all the kids, families, and community members affected by this senseless act.”
“I’m grateful for the first responders and folks who acted quickly to help, and we are in contact with local partners as we await more information.”
Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow tweeted:
“I have been in contact with Mayor Reilly and offered any resources the county could provide. I have also spoken with the Governor who offers his prayers and assistance.”
“This is an unspeakable tragedy, affecting us all as we work to overcome an extremely challenging two years and resume our cherished holiday traditions. Keep the families affected in your thoughts as we work to offer whatever support we can.”
Is it possible we’ve all been missing something extraordinary in life? Can we really discover and understand the secret to EVERYTHING? Joe Kovacs has just written an inspiring new book that unlocks hundreds of mysteries!

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
