Angela O’Boyle was watching the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, from her balcony when a red SUV sped through the crowd and ran into a marching band. O’Boyle described the event, which ultimately resulted in the death of five people and more than 40 injured, as “surreal.”
“I saw the red truck crash into the band members,” O’Boyle said Monday on “Fox & Friends.“
“He continued all the way down the block to the end of the street. Didn’t stop at all. Just kept going and running over people the entire time.”
Waukesha had canceled the Christmas parade in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. O’Boyle said this was the first year she was able to watch the parade from her balcony.

She was recording a video of the parade to show her children when she ended up documenting the horrific moment the car drove into a crowd.
“I couldn’t believe it was happening,” she said.
Jordan Woynilko, who also witnessed the incident, told Fox News digital that he watched as the SUV struck nearly two dozen people.
“There were moms and dads yelling for their kids, people running around,” he said.
O’Boyle said bystanders and those watching the parade immediately took action after the car ran through the crowds.
“It was instant that they moved into the people that were injured,” she said.
“Instantly, everyone was running towards them or grabbing children and putting them inside buildings that were right away. People jumped quickly into action.”
