DAMASCUS, Va. (CNN) — As many as 50 people were injured Saturday afternoon after a car plowed into parade-goers in Damascus, Virginia, a police dispatcher told CNN.

Of those injured, there were at lease five or six “trauma victims,” the dispatcher said.

The accident occurred during a parade at the annual Trail Days festival in the town near the Virginia-Tennessee border.

The town’s police chief has scheduled a 6 p.m. ET news conference.
