NEW ORLEANS, LA (AP) – One man is in custody after dozens are injured Saturday night after a car crashes into a New Orleans parade.
25-yeard-old Neilson Rizzuto was traveling in the opposite direction of the parade when he struck two vehicles and veered off the road before coming to a complete stop.
The car crashed just before 7pm into a crowd watching the Krewe of Endymion parade in the Mid-City section of New Orleans.
He is being investigated for driving while intoxicated and police do not suspect terrorism.
At least 21 people were treated for non life threatening injuries.
