Two children were killed and eight others were injured at a Texas drag racing event when a driver lost control of his vehicle and crashed into a crowd of spectators on Saturday.

Two boys, ages 6 and 8, died at a popular afternoon event called “Airport Race Wars 2” that attracted thousands to the Kerrville-Kerr County airport, the Kerrville Police Department said in a statement Saturday night.

Around 3:20 p.m. a driver was speeding down the runway when he lost control, “crashing into parked vehicles and striking spectators who were observing the races,” police said.

Four victims, ages 26 to 46, were airlifted to nearby hospitals from the scene, which is about 60 miles northwest of San Antonio, the statement said. One of those injured, a 46-year-old woman, was taken to University Medical Center and remains in critical condition, according to police.

Two other children —  a 4-year-old boy and a three-month-old baby girl — were transported to Peterson Regional Medical Center for precautionary evaluations, police said.
