Around 9.10 p.m. on Saturday, the motorist struck spectators at the Scunthorpe Car Meet at the Flixborough Industrial Estate in Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire.
The severely wounded patient and the other four victims who were gravely harmed are all getting medical attention.
A 17-year-old has been detained on suspicion of operating a vehicle recklessly and inflicting severe harm.
To determine what transpired during the encounter, officers are now requesting dashcam or mobile phone video.
Police said that during the meet on Saturday night, one automobile collided with a number of onlookers.
Authorities are trying to “determine the circumstances” of the collision after launching a multi-agency probe into the event.
In a statement, Humberside police said that “it was claimed that a number of automobiles had been participating in a car meet in the vicinity and one car had been in contact with a number of witnesses.”
There is “blood and debris everywhere,” according to a witness who attended the collision scene on Sunday morning, according to The Mirror.
The person commented on the situation by saying, “It’s not good to see at all.” The tyre marks extend for approximately 100 meters, therefore it must have been a fairly serious collision, says the author.
Another attendee at the meet said, “People being idiotic like this has utterly destroyed the “car scene.” A very terrible day has come for Scunthorpe.
Several automobiles were seen participating in the meet in a video shared on Snapchat.
As they moved out onto the road in front of the bunch of auto enthusiasts, drivers were spotted revving their engines.
Other cars could be seen stopped across the street with their headlights on, waiting their turn in the automobile parade.
It is believed that none of the other cars were involved in the crash.
A multi-agency major incident response is underway, and Inspector John Rickells said, “We are working with our emergency service colleagues to offer emergency first aid and determine the facts of the event.”
A 17-year-old has been detained on suspicion of inflicting severe harm by reckless driving as part of our investigations. Our investigations are still in their very early stages, but we will provide additional details as soon as we can.
The officer begged members of the public to give over any video or information they may have about the collision.
We are aware that many persons fled the site before emergency personnel arrived, and they could have seen what transpired, the official added.
“We would ask that anybody who may have cell phone or dashcam video of the involved cars both before and at the moment of the accident contact us so that we can determine precisely how the event transpired,” the statement reads.
Our investigations are now in their very early stages, he said, and we will provide additional details as soon as we are able to.
