An accident with an out of control stunt car which drove into a crowd of onlookers meant a mother and her two daughters were rushed to hospital. As by wonder after seeing the footage, the injuries are only minor. The events took place during a Brisbane monster truck show at the Mount Gravatt Showgrounds.

Police declared afterwards that one of the trucks lost its steering after going over a jump and then crashed straight through a temporary fence. Attendees said the whole thing looked very scary and many questioned the safety provisions that had been foreseen.

"One of the roller cars came over the metal jump and turned sideways, lost control and came through the barrier fence," a commenter said on Twitter.

"Well, if you call it a barrier fence."

The driver of the car said his brakes might have failed. Police will investigate the accident thoroughly to understand what exactly happened.

The organisers were slammed in several videos spread on social media for not providing adequate safety measures.

Ms Beck Buckman, who had brought her 11-year-old to watch, stated: “We spoke to the police as a result of there was no info from organisers. It was horrible to witness and the entire thing was a joke … the organisers weren’t doing something.”

“We paid a $100 a ticket and it left our youngsters traumatised, they felt bodily sick watching it.”

It was claimed by the paramedics called in afterwards that there was no first-aid provision on site.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said: “The potential is sort of massive for these vehicles to go proper into the gang in the event that they proceed ahead so from our standpoint, it was a really lucky incident.”

Apocalypse? Minor injuries are now a click-bait apocalypse? Fake bullshit pisses people off. Notifications turned off. Goodbye "The Goldwater." It's impossible to trust a "news" service that misleads you. That's a sign of either dishonesty or stupidity and there's more than enough of both today.
