At least eight people, including four children, were killed when a monster truck spun out of control at a show in Chihuahua, Mexico.

The driver told authorities that he hit his head and passed out as the car came down hard on the front wheels after jumping over an obstacle. State Governor Cesar Duarte said that the driver had possibly drunk alcohol, but added that prosecutors would determine culpability.

Twenty-eight people remain hospitalized after the incident, with twelve in critical condition.
